revised How can I change the default encoding type Thunderbird uses when composing a new email?
I don't know where it is on Linux, and apparently neither of us knows where it is on Windows. It would be better if the editor created his own answer with a screenshot of Linux.

comment Why is base64 needed (aka why can't I just email a binary file)?
Exchange servers within an organization send email as binary using the BDAT command, but they don't do this for SMTP servers outside of the organization.

comment How to remove grayed out unknown login item Snow Leopard
For me, the unknown item is not in that plist, and right-clicking does not bring up the "Reveal in Finder" context menu (though it does for the other items).

comment How to decode email header content
While it's true that some Message-IDs have no meaning, others do. See this article from Blackhat: blackhat.com/presentations/bh-europe-07/Mora/Whitepaper/….

comment Does anything actually use the Comments and Keywords header fields in IMF (RFC 5322)?
Pretty simple: Comments and Keywords are header available to email clients and servers. As far as I can tell, none of my clients use them. I am wondering if any clients or servers actually use them.
