You identify me as a frequent MIME offender (under the guise of an older
address <rmyers at oak.total-web.net>)
My mail client, Eudora Pro 5.0.2 is MIME compliant but I have it set to
send plain text and to include text attachments as text in the body of the
message. I do not send jpegs, etc., to the list - any of the lists - I'm on.
I do not send styled text or any of the other activities which require or
make use of MIME. I do not italicize. I do not use underlining or color or
whatever else might generate MIME codes. I use simple old fashioned plain
Unfortunately, the header which is generated somewhere during this process
and a bit later in the header:
In fact, Phil, I have tested my mailer by forwarding (to myself) posts I
have received from others with MIME encoding. When I get them back it is
obvious that the MIME content has been stripped out leaving simple plain
text documents. There appears nothing else remaining for me to do by which
I can eliminate the unfortunate header wording which you are apparently
catching in your filter. I have tried numerous times to send you private
mails. Virtually never have I received a reply. At first I felt that you
were, in effect, telling me that I wasn't good enough (or something) to
deserve the courtesy of a reply. I have since realized that my messages to
you were simply being discarded before you ever even saw them. Because of
this I fully expect not to hear directly from you on this matter this time
I can do nothing more at this end to eliminate the "MIME 1.0" line in the
headers. Perhaps, Phil, you can refine your filter.
BTW, I passed Reading Comprehension 101 many, many years ago.
