Hi, I'm a new entrant to the list. I have searched the archives and am
floating on the edge of my knowledge envelope here - be gentle please :~).
We are trying to set-up a mailing list for our client base using majordomo
v 1.94.3 as managed by our ISP. We wish to add a subject-prefix and a
message_footer. We are testing internally. For a majority of the users on
the list (at this time all except me!) this works fine - all messages
appear with both items added. However, every message I post "appears" not
to have the subject prefix nor the message footer. This is only the case
when the recipient mail package is the full version of Outlook. If viewed
through outlook express the subject pre-fix is there but not the message
footer. Both the subject -re-fix and the footer _are_ there when the "raw"
internet message is viewed.
After investigation by both us and the ISP we have identified the fact that
my copy of Outlook 97 (8.02.4212) is sending messages as a multi-part Mime
message. The footer is being added as a base-64-encoded file (I have _no_
idea what this means!). My simple understanding is that Majordomo appears
to add the subject pre-fix and footer as another mime part which is
automatically stripped out by Outlook.
We obviously want everyone who posts to get the full message with the
subject prefix and the footer which carries a disclaimer.
Has anyone come across this and if so are there any solutions - a majordomo
config issue perhaps.
Grateful for your help.
