Sounds like quoted-printable encoding...  =3D would be inserted where it
wants ASCII x'3D' to be inserted.  Other =XX codes can also be inserted,
where XX is the hex ASCII code to insert.  If the last character of a line
is "=" then the line should be joined with the next line before displaying
it to a user...

A properly formatted e-mail document will say that the body is
quoted-printable in the heading for the e-mail body.  There are, however,
many e-mails that are not properly formatted and do not properly list the
body as quoted-printable. :(

The official resource on the format of an E-mail body is RFC 2045.  If you
skip down to section 6.7, you'll get a detailed description of how
quoted-printable works.  Here's a link to the RFC:
