Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 22309
content-type wrong for outgoing GPG-signed messages
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:12 EDT
When sending a GPG-signed message using Pine (via the gpg-sign filter), the
content-type is 'text/plain' rather than 'application/gpg; x-action=...'.
This means that if the receiver is using something a real mail client like
mutt ( ;-) ), they have to use procmail to fix up the content-type first
(or do it by hand).
To reproduce: send mail with pine and sign it; read the mail using mutt.
This is not a bug in Pine. Pine allows you to change the content/type of a
message. I would say the bug is in the gpg-sign filter or the mistake is in the
way you use it. Did you use the _MIMETYPE_ token when sending the mail?
I've read the relevant RFC's, and I agree that this is something that
should be fixed. I don't consider it an extremely high priority though
because the pinegpg app has a few other problems and I am going to try
and find a better replacement for it if there is one out there. If not,
I will look into this again some time before too long and fix it.
Going through deferred items. pine is deprecated now, so closing this
