• MIME glitch in PRM?

    From Mike Luther@1:117/3001 to All on Sunday, August 18, 2002 12:20:24
    Of late I've been taking the first of a number of MIME errors in Post Road Mailer. They are all, as far as I can see, related to trash mail which is coming in from either sites which are blocked by me with my filter list, or from a site which sends in a message with no subject and no person shown as a sender.

    Has there been a change in the MIME 'standard' which PRM doesn't catch?

    Consider the lillies and how they grow! Others are toiling not nor do they spin, I hope!

    I'm using Norman's now 5.2.10 on this box. As well as whatever it does on the fly with the on-access game it supposedly is doing, I also have enabled the PRM
    to use the message exit .CMD file which forces an NVCC check of the applicable directories for boogers. However, in the past two months some 2000 messages, since I converted to Norman 5.2, it's not told me it found anything concrete. It did, once, tell me that a .ZIP file, since it was told to check all attached
    archives as well in my .CMD file, was of no known file type. It then gave me an opportunity to do something about that file.

    That ZIP file, was indeed corrupt, on later analysis and could not be unarchived at all when I looked at it.

    So I guess Norman is working.

    Or .. is it blowing away a trash infectected MIME attachment part that it finds, and that is why PRM's MIME is glitching?

    Currious mind wants to know.

    Mike,

    Do you have all the fixes for Post Road Mailer? I have four or five here that fix problems, to include one that sounds awfully similar to what you're having. Want me to email them to you?

    In fact, there is a patch for MIME-encoded attachments in PRM that I have here.

    Let me know if you need them.

    in PRM that I have here.

    I didn't even know there were any patches! I have the last paid-for version and also the free one that was released dated 10-23-97. To my understanding that's supposed to be the latest one which was also the code packed in the freed-up serial release now that I look in the archive to see the dates...

    If what you have is post this code level would you would be so kind as to get them to me? mike.luther@ziplog.com will get it!

    Thanks!
