Hi,

when I add a header to the message, the message will be send as
attachemnt. The message is *not* html. It looks like this:

Hallo Matthias Rieber,

---1521340903-909602307-1086625878=:18605--


I was using the same config, except security updates (Debian Woody), some
month ago without any problems. I switched from pine 4.51 to 4.60. But I
tried the old version again, still the same problem.

Any Ideas?

regards,

matthias

    I wonder if this may be a problem with character set differences
    (or perceived differences) in the headers versus the bodyparts versus
    the footers. Comments below:

    Not that there is no character set or content-transfer encoding
    listed in these headers.
    ---1521340903-909602307-1086625878=:18605
    Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
    MIME-Version: 1.0
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
    Content-Disposition: inline
    This is the first bodypart. Note that the Content-Type header is:

    Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"

    In particular, note the capitalization of "text/plain" and the
    double-quotes around "iso-8859-1".

    Note that the Content-Transfer-Encoding header is:

    Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

    Note the capitalization of "quoted-printable".
    ---1521340903-909602307-1086625878=:18605
    Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; charset=iso-8859-1
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: QUOTED-PRINTABLE
    This is the second bodypart. Note the differences in
    capitalization of "TEXT/PLAIN", the lack of double-quote characters
    around "iso-8859-1", annd the difference in capitalization of the
    word "QUOTED-PRINTABLE".
    I was using the same config, except security updates (Debian Woody), some
    month ago without any problems. I switched from pine 4.51 to 4.60. But I
    tried the old version again, still the same problem.
    I'd be inclined to check the code to see if it is sensitive to
    differences in capitalization or presence/absence of quote
    characters. Note that this might be a difference in the way Python
    handles things as opposed to Mailman, so you should check all the
    relevant code and modules for Python itself, as well as the Python
    code for Mailman.
