Sorry about continuing this thread which obviously is not about
fetchmail. I'll finish it with this message, but if anyone has any ideas
please send them to me.
Your message prompted me to search the M$ bug base and I found:
"OL98: Embedded Objects May Be Lost When Sending Internet E-mail"
"When you send an e-mail message that contains an embedded object, the
embedded object may be lost if you are sending the message by means of
the Internet Mail service in Microsoft Outlook 98.
*NOTE*: This problem only affects embedded OLE objects. When you forward
a contact, the contact becomes an embedded object in an e-mail message
and exhibits this problem. Attachments are not affected, and the
Microsoft Exchange Rich Text Format (RTF) is not required to send
The same identical bug is reported for Outlook 97, and dates from June
'97. M$ obviously has no intention of resolving it. And there is no
explanation of why it happens.

they are not lost there either.
I just hoped there was some workaround.

I added a rule in Outlook to copy all new messages to a save folder.
Hence, if any message is truncated during IMAP retrieval, I can always
get it back without having to bother the sender.
I also changed the AutoArchive property for the save folder to delete
its items after 1 month. Hence, Outlook will automatically clean up
the saved messages without my intervention.
