I'm a Perl coder living in Bethlehem, PA and working Philadelphia. I'm a philosopher and theologan by training, but I was shocked to learn upon my graduation that these skills don't have many associated careers. Now I write code.

bizarre email headers, part 23412

[ #36891 ]

I see a lot of crazy email content and headers. I should post more of them, just for giggles. Here's one I found sitting in wtf.msg in my home directory at work:

Content-type: multipart/related;
    type="multipart/alternative";
    boundary="----=_NextPart_000_003D_04D3ADB7.0E7B0925"

So, it's a multipart/related message with a ... type ... of multipart/alternative. What?

Maybe it was a heads-up: the only part inside the multipart/related was a single multipart/alternative.

I don't think this is the only cause of the problem, but:

X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2800.1158
X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V6.00.2800.1441

Thanks, Microsoft MimeOLE!
