It's in mh, I think.

>From the Description for mh;

WARNING: This package is not being actively maintained upstream.  It has       
known limitations dealing with MIME and other modern mail features.  In
general, we recommend you use the largely equivalent nmh package instead of
this one.

Switching to nmh does indeed fix the problem.

How strongly should we encourage people to switch to nmh?
