continuing my diversion story from before: ethereal still kinda sucks, so I scrapped that. I then remembered Outlook Express has an option to log SMTP/IMAP/NNTP/etc.. (of course they called SMTP logging "Mail loggin", but I knew what they meant.) Anyway, I looked at the log (after digging to find it in: C:\WINDOWS\Profiles\bradfitz\Application Data\Identities\{CB2D3900-B8E0-11D3-9FB4-CBF35F76F04A}\Microsoft\Outlook Express) It was useless. They stripped everything after DATA to the closing period. So I couldn't see OE's MIME text. So then I just setup a new user account on, send it some "rich text" mail and looked at the mail spool file. Why didn't I do that to begin with? Anyway, I have OE's raw message body text now (that was way too damn tedious). Time to make Perl's MIME::Lite produce that sort of output, or write my own solution (most likely). Maybe I'll take this as a break and go take a shower. (Shutup Dana, I do not stink. :P)
