Bad MIME handling HTML emails?

Hello,

I have a strange problem probably MIME handling related. Sometimes when
user creates ticket via email and someone tries to reply to this
transaction body of requestors email is not included or plain text
attachment is included instead of body content (quoted) as required.
It seems like RT has problem handling mails with HTML attachments. May I
update MIME::Tools ?

When I try to reply on mail1, requestor text is not included in. Strange
is that attachments in requestors corespondence are before mail body
(text or html).

Same ticket, owner did a reply to requestor and requestor reply also
(mail2). Afaik same MUA used (There is no html alternative part, i think
its because requestor has something like “send plain text only in reply
to plain text emails” and “send html + text by default”). When i hit a
reply everything is ok. (note that attachments are after email body)

+++ MAIL 3 +++
When I try to reply on next mail (mail 3) content of LogFile.txt is
quoted! instead of mail body. Interesting that via web everything is OK
(body is displayed as body).

I have a strange problem probably MIME handling related. Sometimes when

It seems like RT has problem handling mails with HTML attachments. May I
update MIME::Tools ?

RT3.2.2, Perl 5.8.4, MIME::Tools 5.413

We’ve improved this a lot in RT 3.4. Give 3.4.2 a shot?

No :frowning: I upgraded 3.2.2 to 3.4.2 on my development machine to different
directory, did db objects upgrade:

~/rt-3.4.2# for i in 3.3.0 3.3.11;do
/opt/rt_34/sbin/rt-setup-database --dba root --prompt-for-dba-password
–action schema --datadir etc/upgrade/$i ;
/opt/rt_34/sbin/rt-setup-database --dba root --prompt-for-dba-password
–action acl --datadir etc/upgrade/$i;/opt/eu_rt/sbin/rt-setup-database
–dba root --prompt-for-dba-password --action insert --datadir
etc/upgrade/$i;done

and behavior is still the same. I also tried upgrade MIME::Base64 5.411 -> 5.417 and MIME::Tools 3.01 -> 3.05.

Can you send a sample message to me?

Sent to Jesse.

Hello,

problematic mail I reported contains sensitive information, so I did
some test mails which acts the same in RT3 web interface (content of
text attachment is offered as quoted instead of mail body in Reply action).

Two are from Outlook Express 6 (Win XP) and one from ThunderBird (Linux)

It seems to me, RT3 have a problem if mail body contains html form and
plain text file is attached.

Thanks a lot
