Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 101307
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:56:24 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Evolution reliably corrupts certain email attachments by truncating them.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Send the attached file as an attachment.
Watch half of it fail to reach the recipient.
I'd like the whole thing to be sent, please.
The file appears to be truncated where the quoted-printable encoding wraps a
line containing a "." on the last character, such that the "." gets wrapped to a
single line of its own. The attachment gets truncated at that point: the line
with the single "." gets thrown away. It's common for MTAs to treat a single
"." as end-of-text so I suspect such an interaction here.
Created attachment 93266 [details]
sample attachment demonstrating the problem locally.
Created attachment 93267 [details]
Dump of the email as received.
How are you set up to send mail -- via sendmail locally or by connecting via
SMTP to a remote host?
I have also experieced trouble with corrupt attachments. I have not
had a chance to check whether the message is truncated, but I am
having reproducible problems with PDF attachments. When zipped, the
attached file appears to pass through without difficulty. It looks
the same as the problem described here. Is there a fix coming for this?
I'm sorry that this bug hasn't had any activity for so long.
Have either of you experienced similar problems with more recent
versions of Evolution? (version 1.2.2-5 is reported above, we're
almost at evolution-2.0.0 in rawhide)
Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at
Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do
want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks.
If this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release, please
open a new bug with the relevant information.
Closing as CANTFIX.
