I’ve had the same problem for a while.

Add “;format=flowed” to the Content-Type and watch the CRs
disappear from view. At least in mutt. I’m not sure this is the
right fix, to be honest; but it’s the only thing which managed to
excise those pesky CRs. (See <>
as well as RFC2646.)

Took me a while to debug this, let me tell ya. I had taken to
filtering Kelly’s messages through a “s/=OD//g”.

Another annoyance is that he is one of the few frequent posters
on the list who uses a MUA that does not supply threading headers
(In-Reply-To, References).
