Sorry, I don't know what happened to my message. I did write normal
text, but seems GMail sent it base64 encoded as you just said.

Maybe my name triggering UTF-8, mixed with other encondings (coming
from previous mails on the thread) made GMail decide to just base64
everything and "problem solved"?

Because other than that, I sent the e-mail like all the e-mails I've
sent in the last years. and I'm a member of other mailing lists, and
this never happened to me before.
