The above should be fine if Basecamp requires plain text messages. You can however probably create a reply so simple that neither `format=flowed` or `quoted-printable` is needed (the latter should rarely be needed at all, but the quoted text probably contains some very long URLs or other non-breakable lines).

Corey (the OP) has been corresponding with the Basecamp people. As far as I understand, their parser does not like that the headers above do not include an explicit charset (according to the standards that implicitly means the charset is ASCII). This is going to be fixed in Basecamp.

Even though MailMate behaves correctly I've just reconsidered how this works and I've decided that MailMate should always add a charset. I liked that MailMate did not generate more headers than necessary, but (for various reasons) in this case it is better to be explicit instead of implicit.
