Hm, well ... I think notifying the user of that might be tough.  But ...
we DO have the problem where users say, "Hey, this email doesn't look
right" and we first have to figure out what the email contains to try
to determine what is going wrong.  A set of emails that we know the content
of sure would help in debugging that.  I think that would be worthwhile
to put together if you wanted to do that.  It might even help a few
long-time MH/nmh users on this mailing list who somehow manage to keep
munging 8-bit characters in their replies (you know who you are!).
