Hi there,

I have a problem with the webmail interface of KMS 6.1.1 Patch1

All Multipart Messages get strings like that:
Quote:


ontent-Type: multipart/mixed;
boundary=" ----------respect-the-roots-de2c37f706772d66c730a45f14904be1 "

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

------------respect-the-roots-de2c37f706772d66c730a45f14904b e1
Content-Type: multipart/alternative;
boundary="----------peace-on-earth-2569e27732d3fd56eebd0a656bf9b037 "

------------peace-on-earth-2569e27732d3fd56eebd0a656bf9b037
Content-Type: text/plain;
charset="iso-8859-1"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable



The text is changing from "pease-on-earth" to various text like:
heal-the-world
save-the-trees
respect-the-roots
flower-power

If this is a new "feature" from KMS I would like to say "thank you" because some receiver has set us to junk mail.
Currently we can not use Webmail. Because I have around 40 Users with are mostly using Webmail I am running into problems.

If some crazy coder from the seventies is working for you please stop him.... (btw. sounds also like "drug free working - no thank you")

Anybody with a solution without changing the webmail server?

Thank you.

Perhaps you shouldn't be worrying about KMS, but about the administrators of the recipient's mail server that has marked your mail as junk. Why have they done so? If it is only because of those phrases then they are probably incompetent - do you really feel that Kerio have any responsibility for that?

Hello,

Simple to answer: Because they can do it...

I think so... but I can not change their mind and Server settings.

No.
(only if you don't make these phrases admin editable to make more of this style....)

The Problem could be my boss. If he feels that a software has to much problems he wants the software to be changed. I do not want to change from Kerio to anything else.

Please take this as a feature request to make the phrases admin editable or add more.
Thank you.

(If someone feels to ask about Windows:
In Germany we must use Windows for transmitting Tax and Payroll information. As long as the required software works only on Windows my Boss can't get away from it... otherwise we would have done so.)

Can someone explain this problem for me plz.

I don't think I am affected by it but it sounds interesting, what is the actual issue? Where do those weird phrases come from?

The MIME boundaries are arbitrary text that needs to be somewhat unique, which is why they are usually gobbledygook. Often they contain something like "boundary" or the name of the server, for no particular reason other than to simplify identification of nested MIME structures. In this case a Kerio coder has chosen to put in a selection of harmless phrases, for his own amusement I guess.

The OP has a target mail server that files his mail as spam on account of these phrases. Unfortunately the incompetence that leads to that happening also leads to it not being fixed, so Kerio have been asked to remove these thoughtful but unnecessary phrases as the only way the OP can get the issue resolved.

Ah, I understand now, thanks Paul.

As for Kerio I think the delimiter phrases are pretty 'groovy'

:-)

...and when Kerio could make these phrases user editable, I would send tonns of messages to the target server with some "nice" messages with my opinion about them...
