Texting, texting, one two three

Yup. It's the "quoted-printable" encoding. The header lines

User-Agent: KMail/1.4.3
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

Actually, this time there was  the  even  funnier  "=3D20",
which is presumably due to an original "=20" being encoded,
which turned the '=' into "=3D". I've seen 4 or 5 levels of
this encoding used, which produces some strange wallpaper.

Sure would be nice if plain text could arrive undamaged.
