Excerpts from internet.ietf-822: 18-Feb-93 MAIL WARS Part VI: The Reve.. Mark Crispin(_at_)cac(_dot_)washing (301*)
There is an X.400 -> MIME gateway that sends headers like:
Interesting pathological case. Out of curiousity, I just tested both my implementations, metamail and Andrew, on a message like this. The results:
1. Metamail did this:
This message contains data in an unrecognized format, ,
2. Andrew just treated it as if it were "text/plain; charset=us-ascii", with no complaints or warnings.
Does anyone have any opinions on what behavior is preferred in this situation? I suppose I ought to fix one of them to be consistent with the other.... -- Nathaniel
