Hear hear!!!  This seems like a must have for 2.0 to me.  80-90% of the
email I get is Mime email, so that would be a huge help.  Another issue to
go along with the Enter enter enter bit is that when reading single
messages the header often scrolls off the top of the screen before the
pager kicks in, which is a pain in screen because you can't just grab the
scroll wheel/bar and take a look. I both of these are well within the
scope of the MIME cleanups being suggested.
