            Bug ID: 2980
           Summary: PGP/Inline encrypted messages use binary content
                    transfer encoding
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.9.1
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Other
          Assignee: users at lists.claws-mail.org
          Reporter: LoseDanger at mailinator.com

When sending PGP/Inline encrypted messages in Claws Mail, it uses:

Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary

However, RFC2045, section 6.2. Content-Transfer-Encodings Semantics,
https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2045#section-6.2 , specifies that "[...] there
are no circumstances in which the "binary" Content-Transfer-Encoding is
actually valid in Internet mail."

This section is further updated in rfc6532, which still does not permit to use
binary content transfer encoding in the way it is currently done in claws (it
would require using message/global instead of message/rfc822).
