I have a situation where emails sent from a Linux box running Postfix
are apparently getting mangled by a Domino server. Lines beyond a
certain length are broken with an = symbol at the end of a line which
has a continuation, and the _ (underscore) symbol is replaced in the
email with =5F.
This problem only appears to happen when the mail is sent to and
popped from the Notes server - if it's sent to the Notes server for
onward delivery elsewhere it doesn't happen, and if emails of similar
type (XML simply included in the body of a text email) are sent to
the Notes server from another Postfix server, they don't get mangled.
The mails popped have a header
and I strongly suspect that that encoding is the issue, but what I'm
wondering is how to stop the notes server doing that. Is there
anything I can do on the Linux box to the sent mails to make the
notes server not mangle the mails? As an aside, WHY does it encode
the _ symbol? It's 7 bit clean.
