inline.txt

Hi there,

some mails got attachments with inline.txt cotaining binary data. What’s the reason for this and how can I prevent it?

Thanks a lot

Greetings

Could you provide some info on the structure of the original mails? Do they have multipart/mixed, multipart/alternative, etc.? You can set the dagent up to dump the raw eml files so you can inspect.

Thanks for your fast answer. I downloaded the eml file from DeskApp and opened it with Notepad++ it revealed:

Content-Type: multipart/mixed;
boundary="=_2FXNfckB9TopvsUfVg0MLEjlGeKnDTaJOyh1uU4Cje9cBv9a"
X-Priority: 3 (Normal)
X-Mailer: Kopano 8.1.1-10

This is a multi-part message in MIME format. Your mail reader does not
understand MIME message format.

Content-Type: multipart/alternative;

Unfortunately this gives the converted message. When a message arrives to kopano it is converted into a MAPI object. On retrieval from webapp/imap/etc it is converted back. The ideal would be if you could configure dagent to saved a copied message and send me the structure of the message.

@Atomius in /etc/kopano/dagent.cfg set the parameter log_raw_message to yes. Restart the dagent.
This makes the dagent dump the original email received into a file in /tmp.

We need that one to analyze how the original email looked like before it’s converted into a MAPI object.

Okay, I’ve done that. Hopefully this option does not consume much space if all messages are stored there. How do I find the right message there, if one with inline.txt appears?

@Atomius it will use additional disk space, how much depends mainly on the type of email you receive (many attachments, higher disk usage).

I would say identify such a newly received email and then grep in the directory to find the corresponding eml, e.g. by grapping the subject.
Delete the others to avoid wasting too much space.
