MIME decoding

2000-02-26 23:04:19

I browsed through the mailing list archive but haven't found
an answer yet:

I poll mail messages from our Exchange server via IMAP
(Mail::IMAPClient module). If I fetch a full message at one time,
then the message doesn't have a space line between the header
and the body. I can work around this by fetching the header
and the body manually and assign both togtether with an
addional new line.

Inside MIME coded messages there are no new lines in front
of and behind the mime headers, e.g.


This message is in MIME format. Since your mail reader does not understand
this format, some or all of this message may not be legible.
Content-Type: text/plain;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
<MIME body x>
Content-Type: application/octet-stream;
<MIME body y>


MHonArc (version 2.4.5) doesn't parse these coding correctly.
It requires space lines before and after each MIME header.

I am not familiar with the specification. Is there a workaround
for MHonArc or do I have to filter the message body and insert the
required lines manually?

Thanks for your help.
