[Mimedefang] Bad char in body

As I mentioned, we are rejecting for bad characters in body.  A user
here reports that he's getting it now when he attaches a Word document.
He sends mail with Netscape 7.  Notably:

Presumably the attachment is encoded into base64 but that character set
does not even include null or return-- I think.

Has anyone heard of this?

I may have to set up a test host that accepts bad mail and files it for
me to look at...
