It seems all mailing lists on fedoraproject.org
take base64 encoding
Now I am using mutt as mail client, I searched mutt help and found
decode-copy works for me. Thanks for your help.
Thanks a lot

I have looked at various mailing list options available to admin and
I can't find anything which allows me to change this behavior.
A quick internet search also does not tell me how to change it.
Shouldn't the mail client automatically decode message for you. Which
mail client are you using and how are you saving messages/patches.
I use mutt to save patch and it seems to decode it fine.
There also seems to be this utility "base64" to encode/decode messages.
May be try it to decode base64 message you have and then apply it.
