A multipart/mixed mime part MAY NOT be encoded using base64 or
quoted-printable or any other encoding for that matter. These messages
are broken according to the mime specification.
Other mail software doesn't handle them either.

the encoded stuff.
Is this behavior normal? Is there any way to have Evolution decode
these and be able to view them inline or save them as an attachment?
I can save the encoded stuff to a text file and decode it manually using
I'm using Evolution 18.104.22.168 on Red Hat 7.2.
