They all should. AFAICT even Outlook should be able to recursively
open MIME attachments that are themselves emails, and reply to them in
the usual manner. (I can't speak for mobiles and suchlike.)

What's important, however, is that you subscribe to the MIME digest,
and not the Plain one because with the latter:
. you miss the attachments,
. you have to edit out all the surrounding emails when you reply, and
. you have to coerce the client into getting the threading fixed.

For some reason, the
page hides the MIME subscription option below a section that implies
you need to login as an administrator.
