Please feel free to send me to another forum (Eudora, MIME-Tools or sendmail) as appropriate. I just thought I would start here for clues, (and in the hope of finding a server-side magic bullet, since I cannot really control the senders or receivers of the messages in question).
We're using FreeBSD 4.9 on our mail server, with a sendmail configuration not much modified from the default except for domain name, acceptable relays, and masquerading. Whenever we get a message that has been handled with "X-Mailer: MIME-tools 5.411 (Entity 5.404)", which we see most frequently on Bugtraq, we have a problem reading it in Eudora.
On the server side, peering into the mailbox file in /var/mail shows that the message is "intact", but that the message body's lines are using a Windows-like line break (CRLF), as opposed to "normal" messages that are using only a line feed. Ironically, my Windows-based email client (Eudora) will not render the Windows-like message bodies properly.
I see http://search.cpan.org/dist/MIME-tools/lib/MIME/Tools/traps.pod, but it's not clear (to me) where in the sender-server-receiver chain this discrepancy between CRLF and LF should be addressed.
Is the problem here that: (a) the sender is not formatting the message correctly (b) my server is not rewriting the message correctly (c) the Windows client is not rendering the message correctly
Is there anything I can do to my FreeBSD/sendmail server configuration to make this a non-issue?
