You can set M-F-T on outgoing messages in mutt or (with difficulty) in
pine, but I don't know of any Windows mailers that could do it. I also do
not know if any Windows mailers will properly handle M-F-T on an incoming
message. This really looks like a "mutt vs the world" issue and mutt
doesn't even have the RFC on its side.

Mutt is a great mailer that does a lot of things correctly, but we have to
exchange mail with people using broken and limited mailers. In that
environment, advocating the use of a header that's not even part of the
spec just isn't realistic. Get M-F-T into RFC2822, then we'll have
something to discuss.
