Have you looked at the examples in

Well, according to the FAQ (if you know better, please tell me!) there
are only three newsreaders with MIME support: trn3, the latest beta
version of nn, and the gnus-mime.el package for GNUS (also beta).

That means probably less than 1% of the USENET population can display
MIME properly, let alone compose it.

(I haven't heard much about the son-of-1036 recently.  Is anyone
working on this?  Henry?)
