Outlook more efficient in storing mails?


I've been reported that Outlook on Windows is more efficient in storing
mails with attachments, as it stores them in unencoded 8-bit format
while the various Unix tools[1] store them as they've been received, so
a big attachment would be stored mime-encoded taking 1/3 more disk size.

Does someone know of work-arounds to this with Thunderbird or Evolution?



[1] except of course mutt storing to compressed mailboxes, but then they
can't be big
