Comments on SendingMail

I found it hard to distinguish differences between MailMode and MessageMode. All I found was: “Message mode handles MIME attachments. This is the main benefit over the default mail mode.” on MessageMode page but there is probably something more.

Also it looks like MailMode is not a default anymore. I found old mail discussion from 2009 regarding switching to MessageMode https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2009-11/msg00471.html So probably MessageMode is a default since Emacs 23.2. I haven’t read the whole conversation so its just a guess. But in my Emacs 26.1 default value for mail-user-agent was message-user-agent.

I would like to know why someone would like to use MailMode and why MessageMode is a default.
