I have no idea what that abbreviation refers to,

but the (obvious) spam (simply by looking at the list of recipients)

this is true. because it was sent to a 'tsl' also.

viewing "source", "header" can be read, but not able to read "body"
because of 'base64'.

to view "body", opened as 'email'. saw link. thought. what the heck.
possible a subscriber messed up. wondered what. clicked link.

using firefox and NoScript, running firewall, rkhunter,
backed up. why not.

firefox displayed a "404". i broke link.

you replied to was not received as base64 encoded, here.

that is because it has enigmail sig. note "source" of this post.

Nor should it really be a problem. Only the most ancient or
dysfunctional mail clients would not be able to handle base64 encoded

what email client in 'view source' mode, show "body" as readable
ascii when email is 'base64'.

And, I dare say, the same derision should be applicable to
anything else that *handles* mail for you.

deride depends on answer to above question. ;)


peace out.
