It looks like you are correct. It is apparently an oversight. I'll fix
it without the report, but it is always good to have the report in the
tracker for the next person that finds the bug.

Does Outlook have an option to use 8bit encoding rather than QP, and
why is it QP encoding a message that appears to not have any 8bit
