Seen in my "badly formatted emails" folder:

In the top-level

MIME-Version: =?UTF-8?B?MS4w?=
Content-Transfer-Encoding: =?UTF-8?B?OGJpdA==?=
Content-Type: =?UTF-8?B?dGV4dC9wbGFpbjsgY2hhcnNldD1VVEYtOA==?=
Content-Disposition: =?UTF-8?B?aW5saW5l?=

(To save you the hassle:

Mime-version: 1.0
Content-transfer-encoding: 8bit
Content-type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Content-disposition: inline
