'About MIME formats'

Hi PIClist fellows,


       I noticed several e-mailings with attachments in an unknown
format: MS-TNEF.
  I use Linux OS, and that format seems to be specific to Microsoft
users, so please avoid using that and try to stay with standard MIME
formats.

regards,

Rildo Pragana

Hi Rildo.

The MS-TNEF type portion you're seeing is the funny way that Microsoft
Exchange uses to send additional information about the text... font names,
sizes, colors, etc.  It doesn't contain anything that the ordinary reader
should worry about missing.  The senders aren't even aware that it's being
produced.

Rick

Hi Rick,

Thanks for your answer. It's clear now! Just some crap the good fellows of
Microsoft invented to "create" their own standards... Sometime I'll begin
to invent my own "standards" too!

regards,
Rildo

       Nice idea, but MIME is an achronym for
Massively Incompatible Mail Experiment.

I'm using MS - anything funny on this mail??  If there is I'll hunt thru
settings looking for it.
