Unable to reproduce. Could you provide a test script?

Description:
------------
An email generated by Mail_Mime had the following headers.

...
MIME-Version: 1.0
From: <xxx@xxx.xxx.xx>
Content-Type: multipart/alternative;
boundary="=_90be54e8dab1de0e2d340c1331fbc037"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
...

According to
http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2045#section-6.4
this is in error. From the RFC:
Certain Content-Transfer-Encoding values may only be
used on certain
media types. In particular, it is EXPRESSLY FORBIDDEN
to use any
encodings other than "7bit", "8bit", or "binary" with
any composite
media type, i.e. one that recursively includes other
Content-Type
fields. Currently the only composite media types
are "multipart" and
"message". All encodings that are desired for bodies
of type
multipart or message must be done at the innermost
level, by encoding
the actual body that needs to be encoded.


Please include

in followups since while I noticed the problem, Francois
is managing the system.
