After quoted-printable decoding, I find that the longest line in that message
is 85 characters long. With your common or garden monospaced font, this
exceeds 75 columns.

The encoded text has no lines longer than 74 columns, but many of those which
are 74 columns wide end with '='... allowing for an assumed trailing space,
is that from where you got your "75 columns"? If so, you've been measuring
the wrong thing.

(I'm tempted to base64-encode this so that I can say that no line in this
message exceeds 64 columns, but I won't.)

That's there, yes, but uselessly: there are no trailing spaces.

None to be removed, but some could certainly be inserted...
