I have am recently testing a gateway, Internet Exchange for cc:Mail and the
double line between the header and the body is now not there, but now I am
getting the following:
This is the messagge I send:
This is what I get back from majordomo:
Why am I getting this header info in the body of the message. It looks as if
it is not correctly finding the seperation between the body and the message
and the first blank line it comes to happens to be in the body itself.
This is the header on the Unix side:
R"|/home/listmgr/bin/wrapper resend -l test -h curie.med.harvard.edu

Hcontent-description: cc:Mail note part
This is the body on the Unix side
Can this be fixed????? Or has anyone found a solution for the double space
between the header and body on the original gateway??? The below solution
would not be feasible to us, since we really do not want to get in to
modifying every message that comes through.
thanks for all your help.....

The problem is that cc:Mail, or more exactly the SMTP gateway, doesn't allow
you to specify header fields directly.
However, it may be possible for you to do what you want nonetheless. I don't
know about the cc:Mail Link to SMTP, but I use the Link to UUCP package, and
from what I've read, the formats for how it handles things may be similar
enough for you to use a trick that I've found useful.
Under your SMTPLINK directory, are there subdirectories called INBOX and
If so, you can just throw an RFC822 message (with a filename of "FAKEMAIL",
for example) into the OUTBOX directory, along with a corresponding
"FAKEMAIL.TO" file which contains a list of message recipients. SMTPLink
should process this message as scheduled, keeping all headers intact.
Try some fakemail experiments and verify that it works for you. It should be
fairly simple to write a program that will add an "Approved:" header to a
message that you can save in to a text file from cc:Mail.
