'[PICLIST] [ADMIN]: Digest problems'
I get my Piclist in the Multipart MIME digest format. Starting last weekend,
when I open it I only see the headers message, 1 message and a blank
message with subject 'unknown'. Saving the digest to a text file I can see all
the messages in an editor. It appears that some type of EOF marker is
getting into the digest causing my e-mail program(Pegasus) to truncate.
Is anyone else having a problem with digests?

I think I found the problem. Blank lines in the digest have a leading space
for some reason(20 0D 0A). When these are around the boundary
separators, e-mail programs that are strict about RFC rules truncate.
With Pegasus I can use properties to set the digest to 'not a valid MIME
message' and then see everything, but as one big message instead og

Uhh, that is strictly as per RFC. A newline alone on a line followed by a
From header in column 0 on the next line, with no column, is standard Unix
mailbox file format, and that's what the RFC specifies. Putting a space on
every blank line is the way they escape the following line to *prevent* it
from being seen as a message header.

You are supposed to see one large message. I see one large message. I
wrote a shell script to split it and re-inject it locally but I prefer the
large message. A digest is a large message.
