As per RFC 2045 base64 is a valid transfer encoding for a message body.
It was declared correctly in the header, too. What kind of MUA do you
use that won't decode this for you?

Besides, before complaining about other people's messages, I'd suggest
you start with fixing your own. Like, by not omitting References and
In-Reply-To headers.
