I'm just wondering if anyone has come across the situation where some
peoples' emails always come through a mailing list system with the text
body removed and lost, presumably due to the originator's email client
or program not being compatible with the mailing list's design or
If so, any idea of a fix ? - I appreciate this may go much deeper into
the actual program design of the mailing list system. I am having the
trouble with Mailgust, a php combined list/forum manager; although still
in beta, I could use it if this 'bug' wasn't happening. I'm in close
contact with the developer but we're all a bit stumped at the moment.
I should add I tried Demime to act on all emails before they entered the
mailing list, but that didn't correct the problem.
One possible explanation is that the list (or the server on which it is hosted)
is configured to strip MIME parts which are not 7-bit ASCII plain text. Your
message to this list would have fallen victim to such filter.
From the message headers:
>Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary="0-1311022355-1078669210=:54684"
Internal MIME headers for part 1:
>Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1
Internal MIME headers for part 2:
>Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1
You should be able to determine whether this is, in fact, the root cause of the
problem by sending a single-part message using 7-bit ASCII plain text. I do not
know whether you can do that with the Yahoo! webmail client.
