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 bradfitz.com, 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)

It seems to me you could just read a doc on mime or something... all of this reverse-engineering is difficult.

Re: back-asswards

Yeah, I have. There are tons of options and flags that not everybody sets and some that most clients don't understand. It's kinda messy. The best way is to just copy the leading implementations' methods (Microsoft and Netscape's).

Re: ...

SO I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY: I want to meet English majors, specifically writers, if anyone out there is an English major, hay let me know..Email me, call me, find me, whatever you must..I want to know if your out their, if your writing, if your doing anything in this feild, and so fourth...I want to raise my feiry pen next to yours and wedge into the darkness with the posion of poetry and compell others to see us, and realize us as the great major we are. I want to feel neither alone in the world, or without similarity-- I wish this to be.
from William shakespeare

Thats for anyone....but I put it on Brad's
to spread it...

Hay Brad: You should make some kind of live journal message board-- You know a place where anyone can write messages, so that anyone can read it, and then anyone can comment...that would be cool.

Re: ...

"I want to know if your out their, if your writing"
I am not an English Major, but I surelyI know that your "their" should be there, and your multiple "your"s should be you are!
Just a tip!

Re: ...

I gave up on being an English Major, and went straight to bird. I get better Scotch that way.

My 'gairokin' says not to reply to said poster. I wish you well.
