Oki, you're right, I changed a few things, and, even though I don't get why
it didn't work, I can send mail to my users normally ...

Except when it come to be sent to a mailman list address :(

When I do this, I get once again the uuencoded attachement as raw text in
the body.

I noticed this, in the cource of the sent mail :

The mailing list bottom lines are seen as attahced files, whereas the pic
itself doesn't ...
I have never ever tryied this before, but is it possible that MIME and
uuencode attachements are in the very same email ?
