Another Attachment / Mail Problem with RT 3.6.5

Hi together, it looks like a bad day for Mail/Attachments…

Just a few minutes ago a user reports problems with mails he sent out via RT webui with attachments.

OK, what i figured out so far:

  1. Attachment Size: 800KB (allowed are 8000KB)
  2. User added at the reply screen a list of 20 people as cc
  3. The list of CC’ed People is 1250 characters long
  4. RT shows the mail (Show Outgoing Mail) correctly with all Cc’ed people
  5. Users get the mail totally destroyed!

Problem:

  1. The CC list is cut after 994 characters, in the middle of an address
  2. The rest of the people from the cc list are the first part of the body
  3. The attachment is corrupted.
  4. The encoding for content is incorrect, german umlaute are broken.

The body looks like this:

agel.com, user1@company.com, user2@company.com, user3@company.com, user4@company.com, user5@company.com, user6@company.com, user7@company.com, user8@company.com
MIME-Version: 1.0
X-RT-Original-Encoding: utf-8
Content-type: multipart/mixed; boundary="----------=_1221049687-28898-8"

This is a multi-part message in MIME format…

------------=_1221049687-28898-8
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

The original Text Content!

Content-Type: application/octet-stream; name="CIEL-Umstellung.zip"
Content-Disposition: inline; filename="CIEL-Umstellung.zip"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
RT-Attachment: 1147288/17593439/12279229

… lots of lines like this

------------=_1221049687-28898-8–

Any ideas what went wrong? We can reproduce this error.

  5. Users get the mail totally destroyed!

Problem:

  1. The CC list is cut after 994 characters, in the middle of an
    address

That sure sounds like a 1000 character wrapping issue. Can you
reproduce it?

  1. The rest of the people from the cc list are the first part of the
    body
  2. The attachment is corrupted.

That’s due to #2

  1. The encoding for content is incorrect, german umlaute are broken.

That’s due to #2
