One would think that a good standard wouldn't allow any such variability.

One would also think that a good implementation won't crash when encountering standard compliant messages (it shouldn't even crash when receiving junk).

In recent versions, we accomodated the Mutt way of encoding PGP/MIME. I don't recall exactly which version that went into. The current Eudora plugin version is 7.1.1 which is of course part of PGP 7.1.1.

May I ask what particular detail of mutt's way of encoding had to be specifically accomodated?

I'm asking because _if_ mutt is violating the standard, this would be something I'd really like to see fixed. (Yes, I am aware that earlier versions of mutt have possibly generated wrong micalg parameters, unless users paid attention. This particular problem has, however, been fixed quite thoroughly.)
