Might it be you're trying to send this confirmation with Outlook? I
ran into this trouble once and knew another reason why someone does
not want to use Lookout. It seems to try to make sense of '=de' as a
QP string, instead of simply "using as is".

I'm quite sure neither vpopmail, not qmail nor any other part of the
MTA and MDA is breaking things up here. Very sure. Check your MUA ...
