Mime mail in RMAIL under WinME

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i386-msvc-windows98.3000)
 of 2001-10-22 on buffy
configured using `configure --with-msvc (12.00)'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil
  value of $LANG: enu
  locale-coding-system: iso-latin-1
  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

When running the command rm (readmail), the system is not
processing MIME encoded messages correctly.  This only 
happens on WinME-hosted v21.1.1.  It's fine on Unix hosted

Under both systems, what I see in emacs after rm is the same 
- the ASCII text including all MIME commands as text (eg 
"content-type" and tons of junk-looking ASCII that is the 
encoding for gifs and the like).  I assume this is the way
things are supposed to be.

The problem happens when I rmail-resend the message and then attempt
to read the resent message on a MIME-enabled mail reader (such as
Netscape).  After Unix-based emacs 20.7.1 rmail-resend, this is fine
and netscape interprets all the MIME commands and converts them into
the appropriate items (clickable links, etc).

After I run rm on WinME-based 21.1.1 and rmail-resend, my netscape
reads the resent mail as all text, showing me all the MIME commands as
text.  Rmail-resend did not have the transparency it should have had.
