So, people are looking into. Literally any mail that goes via Mimecast
servers (at least sent by me!) is converted *for whatever reason* to
quoted-printable.

E.g., patches I punched out today via "git send-email" even have the
line continuations thingy again (they disappeared for a while, maybe
there are different MTAs involved and it's like playing the lottery)

From what I can tell the mail itself is fine once converted, it's just
nasty that 8-bit is converted *for whatever reason*.
