Probably parts of what I said were ``lost in translation'' as English
is not my native language.

I explain again what I meant:

Using non-ASCII chars in the mail *body* together with Jon's
attachment system leads to the following cases:

(1) no attachments & only ASCII -> no MIME; everything well

(2) attachments & only ASCII -> MIME; everything well

(3) attachments & non-ASCII -> MIME; everything well

(4) no attachments & non-ASCII -> no MIME; the message contains
    non-ASCII chars; the recipient can not know which charset the
    non-ASCII chars had been.

To cover case 4, one needs to run mime at the whatnow prompt manually.
