Microshite Outhouse!!!!! Doing it to me again.... Outhouse 2000 and
2002, acting outside the normal bounds of the email world. But why should
that surprise me? I send an attachment from Eudora with a ".exe"
attachment, mail goes to the server, I pop the server, get the email with
the attachment stripped. Perfect. Just want I want. I send the same
attachment through Outhouse 2002, mail goes to the server, I pop the
server, get the email back, and find that the attachment has been seen as a
UUE attachment, and it mangles the extension. So, I says to me self, self,
WTF? I figure what the hell, lets try Outhouse 2000. I sends the email
with the ".exe" attachment through Outhouse 2000, mail goes to the server,
I pop the server, get the email back, and lo and behold - behavior unlike
any other!!!! This time, the attachment is seen as a MIME attachment, and
the attachment is supposedly stripped, at least I don't see the attachment
as an attachment, but guess what? The whole damned attachment is now
99.999% of the body of the email in all it's glorious MIME gobbledy gook.
Oh great Sanitizer Gods, how can I make the Sanitizer behave (I know I
can't make the Microshite products behave.....) the same for the M$
products as they do for most normal email clients. I just want to strip
the attachment completely off, leaving the body of the email intact.
