Hi Tim,

Make sure you use perl for decoding/encoding mime messages in VM . The
built in support or "mimedecode" do not work reliably anymore.
Somehting like:

 vm-mime-base64-decoder-program "/usr/bin/perl"
 vm-mime-base64-decoder-switches '("-MMIME::Base64" "-ne" "print decode_base64($_)")
 vm-mime-base64-encoder-program "/usr/bin/perl"
 vm-mime-base64-encoder-switches '("-MMIME::Base64" "-ne" "print encode_base64($_)")
 vm-mime-qp-decoder-program "/usr/bin/perl"
 vm-mime-qp-decoder-switches '("-MMIME::QuotedPrint" "-ne" "print decode_qp($_)")
 vm-mime-qp-encoder-program "/usr/bin/perl"
 vm-mime-qp-encoder-switches '("-MMIME::QuotedPrint" "-ne" "print encode_qp($_)")

I think I got this from the Debian README for the vm package.

Best regards, Lukas
