Please fix your mailer: it posted the content of your mail as
"application/octet-stream", rather than plain/text, which would tend to
prevent other mailer programs from reading it, except as an attachment.

Unfortunately, there isn't, and the official wget 1.12 release lacks
some necessary changes to allow building with MSYS+MinGw. The current
development sources in Mercurial should work, BUT I was never able to
get openssl working properly with it, which means no HTTPS (encrypted
web) support.

Hopefully someone will bring Wget the rest of way before too long.
