I understand this in theory, but I do not quite fetch how one can regulate
these attachement header fields in one`s mail. Usually, the text-editing
field shows no sign of attachements whatsoever. But after you stop
editing, the mailprogram then inserts some header above the approved line,
as I said earlier on.
When the mail bounces to the approval address afterwards, the mail client
does not present a mail with attachements, but one long message with a lot
of UUCODE in the bottom. I suppose that this text easily can be
interpreted with the right tools, but this is simply to much to demand
from the users, so this solution is not applicable in reality.
Didn`t someone speak about aprroving throug the subject field?
