Re: 8bit transport (8BITMIME) and MIME
What I'm wondering is how all this relates to the Content-Length: header
that shows up in System V release 4 in order to permit binary-transparent
mail without having to stick > in front of lines beginning with From.
The SVID requires this field, and all SVR4 implementations (including Solaris)
If I send mail from, say, UNIX to a user on DOS, the newlines have to change
into CRLF. This changes the length of the message, which invalidates the
Content-Length. But then again, just sending over SMTP causes the insertion
and removal of newlines, possibly changing the length if the message happened
to have any CRs in front of the newlines.
Has this one already been resolved?
