Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 222132
emacs Mail-mode inserts bogus headers
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:52 EST
Description of problem:
emacs Mail-mode adds the following extra headers:
(*) a blank line
(*) a repeated From: header
(*) a repeated To: header
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Simply compose a msg using RMAIL-mode, and read it using whatever MUA you like.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compose a msg in emacs running under FC6.
2. Read it using some MUA (I use emacs RMAIL mode), and notice the blank line
and the extra headers.
The aforementioned extra three lines.
To *not* get these three lines.
I am attaching a full description, explaining some experiments.
BTW, this is similar to bug 195736; however, that bug is for Fedora Legacy RHL9,
whereas this bug is for FC6.
Created attachment 145267 [details]
A description of various experiments I ran to isolate the problem.
One additional remark: This is high-severity, since it breaks recognition of
MIME attachments (such as those attached via the "etach" package).
