I seem to have run into a snag trying to configure MHonArc (currently 1.2.2
with upgrade to 1.2.3 pending) to enable it to successfully handle MIME
attachments of the new 'application/vnd.*' content-type definition. I've
made the requisite MIMEFILTERS additions, but everytime I try to send an
application/vnd.* (eg: application/vnd.ms-excel) MHonArc returns with a
"Could not process..." warning. I'm thinking the filter code in
mhexternal.pl is unable to parse the '.' period in the content-type
definition; if I change both the mail client and MHonArc configuration to
use a different content-type for that same MIME attachment, it works fine.
I've tried modifying the "Get content-type" portion of mhexternal.pl
without any success thus far.
Does anyone know if I'm heading in the right direction or have a fix for
this? I've tried scanning the archive for similar problems, but at 64
bytes/sec it could be quite awhile. ;-)
