WHOA!  Fix your mailer!  At the very least, don't quote raw email addresses: 

but your word wrapping leaves much to be desired.

Full autogen won't work on cygwin at the moment (at least, not unless you 
recompile libguile with a fixed gcc).  But the source to the open_memstream 
drop-in should be easy enough to isolate, and doesn't run into the broken 
libguile dependency.

Yes - just add an entry to winsup/cygwin/cygwin.din and recompile cygwin 
yourself, according to these instructions:
