'Junk in Postings (OT) ... well sort of OT'

Occasionally posts to this list contain a lot of extra baggage
such as:

------ =_NextPart_000_01BD25C5.8BC30200
Content-Type: application/ms-tnef
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64

eJ8+IgEXAQaQCAAEAAAAAAABAAEAAQeQBgAIAAAA5AQAAAAAAADoAAEIgAcAGAAAAElQTS5NaWNy
b3NvZnQgTWFpbC5Ob3RlADEIAQ2ABAACAAAAAgACAAEEkAYA4AIAAAIAAAANAAAAAwAAMAMAAAAL
AA8OAAAAAAIB/w8BAAAAWAAAAAAAAACBKx+kvqMQGZ1uAN0BD1QCAAAAAHBpYyBtaWNyb2NvbnRy
b2xsZXIgZGlzY3V .... and so on for dozens of lines.

Evidently the above contains another copy of the message in mime(?)
format.


On a number of occasions I have sent the poster a private note, including
a copy of their post as it came through.  It all cases, I received
pleasant responses indicating surprise that their messages had so much
garbage included.  Most have been able to make the necessary changes
but some have no idea what is causing the problem.  The common
denominator seems to be Microsoft mailers.  I have no experience with
these.  If anyone knows where the magic switches are, you would be doing
us all a favor if you could provide some advice.  It would cut down
significantly on the size of the mail packets.

Technically, MIME is used to separate the parts of the message.
It also describes the encoding format for binary objects (the
MS-TNEF part).  It consists of the 3 lines (marked A above).

The actual part content, "dozens of lines", which bloats the
message is Microsoft specific.

> The common denominator seems to be Microsoft mailers.

You betcha.  MS-TNEF is Microsoft Transport Neutral Encoding
Format.  It's a binary blob used and useful only to people
running Microsoft's email products.  Microsoft assumes everyone
needs these and emits them by default.

Microsoft Exchange is at least properly encapsulating them.
Prior to MIME, they used uuencode and stuffed their binary
object at the end of the text (remember winmail.dat?).

Sorry, I don't.

Actually John, I see attachments from you still, I believe the problem
you are having is that exchange ignores that switch when you hit the
reply button. I used to use exchange, but got rid of it because you can
not (cleanly) reply easily. I think you have to manually do something
everytime you hit the reply button... too long ago, can't remember exact
detail, easiest fix to the problem is by trashing MS garbage software.

BTW, does anyone see extra garbage attached to this mail? Sent from
Netscape Communicator, not sure if this mailer does the unwanted
attachment thing.

Thanks,
Joel A. Kunze

Joel:

No. I don't see any extra stuff - but then I am forced to read email
with MS Exchange at this company.
I sure wish this PIC list was set up to post the sender's back to the
sender - like most other lists.

Hey Wayne,

Try this, I think that's what I did a little after I joined
to be able to see my own posting. Should be set like
that as the default, shouldn't it. That way you are ready
for the bollocking or embarrassment for accidently sending
something to the List instead of privately and have time
to write your "Sorry dudes" letter  ;-)
