Quite the contrary. As documented publicly of late, Outlook in fact
interprets any paragraph beginning with the word "begin" (with some
variation; some say two spaces must follow it, some say one) as
uuencoded text, which it will duly attempt to uudecode. Tough luck if
it wasn't actually uuencoded text in the first place.
You might want to look at such things as mmencode (part of the ancient
but workable metamail package) and the Perl MailTools module.
