You actually communicate with people who notice?

All outgoing email is now processed via mhbuild.  The transfer encoding
isn't quoted-printable unless you happen to have lines longer than 78
characters.  You can change that with the -maxunencoded switch to mhbuild,
which you could put in your profile.  You could also manually specify a
Content-Transfer-Encoding via mhbuild directives, but I doubt you want
to do that.

In the larger sense ... how come you care?  Nowadays pretty much everyone
can handle a quoted-printable email just fine.
