(the ... are continued ='s) with the original
The mangling is annoying a leaves mime-encoded
messages unreadable to some email clients. The
'RFC' Headers are useless.

attachment of the 'RFC Headers' somehow be

The Answer is :

  TCP/IP Services V4.0 should be upgraded to V4.2, or (far better)
  the configuration will want to move move to OpenVMS VAX V7.3 and
  TCP/IP Services V5.1 and associated ECO kits.
  For MIME-encoded messages, please see more current TCP/IP Services
  releases -- topics such as (4492) and (5880) will be of interest.
  Prior to these releases and tools, MIME messages are known to have
  encountered various potential format corruptions.
