The message is tagged with a CTE of quoted-printable, so the '='
is the start of hexdecimal escape sequence for an 8-bit character.
A message with the "=====..." violates the quoted-printable
specification. It should be "=3D=3D=3D=3D..." in quoted-printable.
Is there an easier way to get MHonArc to leave the equal signs alone instea
of removing the "Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable" line from all
offending emails? Is this a bug in MHonArc?
It is not a bug in MHonArc, but a bug in your mail. They do not
conform to the MIME RFCs. MHonArc could be modified to ignore
"=XX" sequences in quoted-printable where XX is not a valid hex
number. Right now it blindly converts any "=XX" sequence when
CTE is quoted-printable.
BTW, my mailer complains about illegal quoted-printable data in
the sample message you sent.
