MH vs. Content-Length: header

MH vs. Content-Length: header

Post by Jason L Tibbitts I » Fri, 29 Apr 1994 00:07:34



On Solaris 2.3 with MH 8.6.3:

MH doesn't seem to like the Content-Length: header that Sun Sendmail adds,
so when I receive a message which contains a line starting with From,
Sendmail doesn't quote it, so MH splits the message and complains.

I'm happy to change sendmail or MH, whichever works.  Should I trash Sun's
sendmail and go with the curent Berkeley version?

version: MH 6.8.3 #27[UCI] (sina) of Sat Feb 19 13:31:38 CST 1994
options: [ATTVIBUG] [DBMPWD] [DUMB] [FCNTL] [FOLDPROT='"0700"'] [MHE]
         [MHRC] [MORE='"/usr/bin/more"'] [MSGID] [MSGPROT='"0600"']
         [RENAME] [RPATHS] [SENDMTS] [SHADOW] [SMTP] [SOCKETS]
         [SPRINTFTYPE=int] [SVR4] [SYS5] [SYS5DIR] [TYPESIG=void]
         [VSPRINTF]

The solution is to type "mailcompat".  This seems to be completely
undocumented, but it works.  The program sets up a .forward file like so:

"|/usr/bin/mailcompat tibbs"

Which does the proper quoting and deposits the mail in your mailbox.

Anyonw know if this has any options or any documentation anywhere?  Exactly
how does it determine what it should quote?

1. content-length not returned in some headers

hello,

I was looking at the headers some Apache servers return and noticed that the
server doesn't always return the content-length :(
I tried looking for a pattern, but it looks like it's random.  Apache sends
the length for some HTML files, and then doesn't for other ones....

for an example, try looking at the headers returned by something like
        http://www.dominis.com/Zines/ByCategory/

Does anyone know why that is ?  Also, this may not be only the Apache
problem....

Thanks !

Otis
