I presume someone fixed fbsd mail filter for web, as
suprisingly it Did display,
(Though one can't inspect header to see what did it & how. )
Just a month or so ago I reported a case where base64 text posting failed
to display on fbsd web.

PS Still leaves me with an EXMH that doesnt forward/reply to
base64 text, merely displays it, (if anyone knows an easy fix I'd
try it, but I'm not too bothered to chase exmh +Tcl/TK + NMH + man
repl. metamail etc more than I already have), base 64 on
plain text is pointless overhead anyway.

	Mail Ascii plain text.  HTML & Base64 = spam.
