Which version? Multiple resource files? Attachment problem

1998-11-11 10:11:34
Hi there,

On the mail-server at my site, in the file mhonarc, the following line
appears among the comments at the top.

##      @(#) mhonarc 1.32 97/06/03 16:51:04 @(#)

A page further down, this line of code appears.

$VERSION = "2.1.0";

So, I take it that the version of MHonArc is 2.1.0, but I'm puzzled by
"1.32": what does this number refer to?


There are over a hundred MHonArc archives at my site. Would it be feasible
to use a different resource file for every archive (or say, a standard one
for most of them and customised resource files for certain archives)? Mail
is automatically filtered into each archive as it arrives, by some means
unknown to me at the moment.


Many (but not all) mail-attachments fail to be archived correctly. Something
like the following then appears in the archived message:

     Could not process part with given Content-Type: application/msword;
     x-mac-type="42494E41"; x-mac-creator="4D535744" 

Is this problem caused by bugs in the version of MHonArc we're using, or is
there something wrong in the setup of MHonArc at our site? (Our mail server
is running SunOS 5.6.)
