When Eudora uploads to an IMAP server, it damages the message.  It
mutates MIME headers and puts in fake HTML which only Eudora can
recognize.   Been through this with a bunch of customers, lots of
scripts to fix the Eudora-damaged mail, not any fun. It's stupid for
them to intentionally break MIME-formatted mail but that's what they do.
