Re: Eudora VS MIME RFC

Qual Comm has been more than extremely reluctant to help us find a solution.
We will more than likely have to find alternative products and eliminate
future purchases of offending software.

I want everyone to understand the story.

- Two weeks ago, I received Capt. Sanborn's problem report.  It was at that
point a claim that the character string "=_" was illegal in a boundary. I
immediately responded that "=_" was not only legal, but even recommended.

- Yesterday, I got his new claim about uniqueness.  I explained the spec,
noting that Eudora was (again) in compliance, and that the other mailer was

- In response, he simply repeated to me his claim that Eudora was at fault.
I repeated to him that it was not, that the other mailer was, but said
that we might consider adding a workaround.

- I then asked this list for confirmation of my reading of the spec, which
I received.  I forwarded Ned's rather definitive statement to Capt.
Sanborn, and noted again that we might consider a workaround.

- At no time has Capt. Sanborn indicated that he has brought the problem to
the attention of the other mail vendor, the one with the non-compliant

Draw your own conclusions about whether or not we have helped them find a
solution, and which software is "offending".
