would be nice to have on the fly uudecoding of images in MailNews rather than
having to wait for the whole message to be completely recieved first. This
feature was was available in NS4.x

Images included as MIME attachments should also do this.

dupe of bug 61810 ?

Not dupe, bug 61810 is about making UUEs visible at all, and this one is about
making them visible as they load.

Depends on: 61810

officially, since this is 4xp, it really isn't an enhancement... Making Minor... 

I would imagine that once uudecoded images are inlined this should be very easy
to implement. (we'd just have to feed the data to imglib as we received it
instead of waiting until the end.)

Thunderbird 3.1.7 not decoding inline UUencode text

It would be nice if Thunderbird could just decode and display all inline UUEncode text as image attachments. Here is an example of such messages.

I agreed that the sender mail client should have follow RFC standards. But many mobile phone mail clients are doing that...
