This is really sad. Since I don't have access to Outlook I am a bit 
curios what the problem with `format=flowed` is for Outlook users? And 
how quoted-printable could be a better solution to that problem? (If 
anyone knows.)

Thanks for the confidence :-) What I had in mind would be something like 
the interface for blocked images or (the experimental) interface for 
PGP, that is, a banner shown at the top of the message with an 
interpretation of the error and maybe a link to additional information. 
But I would leave the message as it was below this. This does not stop a 
user from sending a screenshot of just the banner, but maybe it would be 
less likely to happen compared to the solution described in the blog 

(This is not a high priority issue.)
