PATCH for TMail to handle MS Outlook Emails

TMail handles the “content-type” header field per RFC 2045.

Per the RFC you can not use /[?/=]/ in the boundary=field unless it is
quoted, MS Outlook Express (at least) violates this rule.

The fix is to check the boundary= value for the special characters and
wrap it in quotes if the special characters exist and the field is not
already quoted.

I have written a patch with failing tests for this and sent it to the
Maintainer, for anyone else, you can get it now and apply it to TMail
0.10.8 from here:

Hi! I recently took over maintenance of this project from Minero A.,
as he is too busy with other things. I setup a RubyForge project and
subversion repo. If you are confident in your changes, I’d like to
give you commit privileges. Email me off list and we can discuss
further.
