Hmm.  I can see why you get no body then, because the mailer is
presumably sending that as an inlined mime attachment (I don't have
pine installed here to look).  Anyway, from my recentish glance at
those, if you declare a charset, the other end may try to enforce it,
and you might get some surprises when the declaration and the data
don't match.

In the future this spectacle of the middle classes shocking the avant-
garde will probably become the textbook definition of Postmodernism.
