I found that vmail was using some arcane arguments for mmencode, and my
mmencode was getting some data that casued it to puke. mmencode worked
before with only precisely correct input. I've made some tweaks to both
vmail and mmencode to hopfuly address some of these problems.

Do consider learning Tcl. Michele suggested I include some Tcl programming
info, see /usr/tcltk/doc/Tcl-Programming.HOWTO for my quickie guide. Most
of it is just links to useful web site, plus some advice. Many people can
learn Tcl basics in two hours, and starting being productive in a few days.
