huge bug

If you want to send the message as it sits in the Cyrus and UW 
mailstores (gzip it so that the mailer doesn't munge it) and possibly 
capture the protocol log of the client trying to fetch the message, we 
_might_ be able to figure out what is happening.

My guess would be that Eudora is not formatting the MIME message 
correctly (ill-formed/missing boundary?).
