This message IS in MIME format

Steve, thanks for "name changed to protect the guilty", namely me. I use
Microsoft Exchange, mandated by employer, which defaults to MIME. I have no
choice, unless I go to Eudora or something, with a private (costs me)
account. NOT.

Dan, is there some way to strip the MIME junk out? It really has very little
use on this list, given that some of us suffer from non-MIME aware email
front-ends, and we need a least-common-denominator format to communicate.
