To add something regarding the second part of your question: Zmailer's
local transport (mailbox) is capable of decoding QP and B64 when
saving data to the mailbox.  For my own reasons, I had to add similar
translation to smtpserver.  You may want to have a look at
smtpserver/README.translation (though you are unlikely to need it on
the smtpserver stage).
