Just as the Content-Type says for those individual message parts, the data
has been encoded using the 'quoted-printable' algorithm.  "=20" represents a
space in QP, and a "=" at the end of a line is a "soft break" where a long
line has been broken into multiple lines by inserting adidtional CRLF
characters.  QP has a fixed length per line, so longer lines have to be
broken up during transmission and then reassembled when decoded..
