Html2mime+

Hi all,

I’ve adapted html2mime into a multi-function script I’m calling mailfilter.
mailfilter will pass messages to SpamAssassin, amend (most) HTML
messages to include an alternate* text/plain part, and can remove
Mac metadata attachments as well.

You can retrieve it from: http://pthbb.org/manual/software/mailfilter

*Fixes html2mime’s formatting that causes RT to display content 2x.

Note that you’ll need this patch

for Mac meta stripping to work.

I’m fresh from a successful upgrade to 3.8.1.

One thing users asked for was to be able to forward out of RT. When I
forward out of RT I get an email with things like this:

This is forward of transaction #66135 of a ticket #4081

Then a mime-attachment.eml

So this wasn’t the expected behavior. Users wanted, well, an email
that looked just like the process when they use reply, but now 'From’
their email to someone else so they can fob off the ticket/email/issue
to someone outside the RT system (like management…).

Anyone have a way to make Forward work like this?

I think ForwardFromUser config option might help. If it’s not then I
don’t get what exactly you want.On Wed, Nov 26, 2008 at 8:56 AM, Carolyn Fairman cfairman@epgy.stanford.edu wrote:

The complaint seems to be about the attachment.
More specifically, I imagine it’s Content-Type: message/rfc822
Alas many MUAs don’t handle this properly (including gmail).

Yes, that’s the issue.

The email content itself is often (for most mail readers staff here
use) just an attachment. In some webmail clients it is ok but not in
Apple Mail or Thunderbird (Windows).
