That is only true for signature. The more important encryption format
is quite portable as you can simple use gpg to decrypt it without
knowing about MIME at all.
If you want to check the signatures, you either have to write a script
which does this for uou or use a compliant mailer.

Does that mean you can't read any MIMEified mail with Eudora? or does
it simply display only the first MIME part? IIRC, there is a new
