Here's a radical thought. You're subscribed to an OpenBSD list.
You presumably are running OpenBSD on a computer somewhere. No MUA
that runs on OpenBSD suffers from this idiotic bug. Read your
misc_(_at_)_openbsd_(_dot_)_org mail on OpenBSD. Set up a computer and email
account just for that purpose if you have to.
Let's turn things around: if this were misc_(_at_)_microsoft_(_dot_)_com, and if
putting ``Theo is a weenie'' in an email would crash OpenBSD's
mail(1), just how much sympathy would you get if you complained
A client of mine that's been paying most of the bills lately is a
nearly-pure (with one lonely exception) Microsoft shop. I have an
account on their Exchange server that I read with Outlook. Of
course it sucks, but that's not the point. The point is that
that's how they want me to communicate with them. So, when I go to
their site or I VPN to their network, I use Outlook. The rest of
the time--and via SSH while I'm there--I've got Mutt running.
