AFAIK, pine uses the QUOTED-PRINTABLE encoding whenever the message 
itself contains non-ascii characters. And that is good, because it's the 
standard. You can't send 8-bit (weird) characters over (possible) 7-bit 

If that annoys you, simply remove the weird characters before sending the
mail and it should be ok. Pine will recognize that there is nothing to
encode and leave it as it is. At least my version of pine (3.91) does it
without any effort of my part.
