In the mail reader of course (after all I expect you to use a mail
client too). And as said, I saw some damage when looking at the
copy on lists.xen.org.

And rightly so. But your mail client saving the mail should deal with
this properly. (And besides, if you already save the mail, I don't

There isn't, unfortunately. I had quite a bit of a fight to at least
have them get attachments through without mangling them.
