Webmail won't display this email

Recommended Posts

I have read through http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=2399 and the other thread referenced in it. Neither one seems to apply exactly to my problem.

I am talking about the webmail system, viewing an item that is in my Inbox, that is not spam and that is not from a virus/worm. I am using IE 6 under Windows XP/SP1 over a DSL connection, if any of that matters.

I received an e-mail that displayed the infamous "There are no parts that can be displayed inline" message. Beyond that, the webmail did not display any links to any alternate parts or attachments. Yet there is, clearly, an HTML section and a JPEG section. When I POP it to my Outlook client, it displays perfectly.

The content-type is "multipart/related." I noticed that the content-type line is broken into two lines, but that doesn't seem to bother Outlook.

I wonder if this is a problem with the IMP/Horde system or what?

Here is the source of the e-mail. I think I have obfuscated all the identifying information and I snipped out the JPEG image itself which I assume is irrelevant (you can see where it was):

I suggest that you forward the original as attachment to JT via support[at]spamcop.net, referencing this Topic.


I just forwarded (and copied myself). As I suspected, when forwarding (even as an attachment), the server inserted a blank line between every line, including the JPEG image. You may recall that's an ongoing problem.

As a result, webmail displayed the forwarded message as text -- html code with blank lines between and JPEG junk with blank lines.

You may recall this problem from an earlier thread: http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=5055

I'd say it isn't resolved any more. But that's a different topic.
