Other email agents such as Apple Mail, office365 and Outlook all
do this correctly.

Possibly other programs do not use /etc/mime.types

I have:

message/rfc822 eml mime

Right, me too. Except on older systems.

I'm confused.
says in 7.3:

"As stated in the definition of the Content-Transfer-Encoding field,
no encoding other than "7bit", "8bit", or "binary" is permitted for
messages or parts of type "message". The message header fields are
always US-ASCII in any case, and data within the body can still be
encoded, in which case the Content-Transfer-Encoding header field in
the encapsulated message will reflect this. Non-ASCII text in the
headers of an encapsulated message can be specified using the
mechanisms described in [RFC-1342]."

So I'm not clear why anything would be using base64?

Exactly my point (and problem). Thanks for finding that RFC, I had come
across it earlier, but then I lost the nunber.
