hmmmm....what does this become in english:

"To: are@a4.no
Content-Type: text/plain
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
X-Mailer: GT::Mail 1.014 (Site: http://www.gossamer-threads.com; OS: linux)
Mime-Version: 1.0

VGFrayBmb3IgYXQgZHUgYmVz and so on....
"

The holde header with the strange text comes when I have validated a link. Is the email encrypted ?

Are

Hi,

This is base64 encoded which your mail reader should decode for you automatically. I've switch to not use encoding by default so that should fix it up.

Cheers,

Alex

Hi

Still the same problem in the New Beta, I get this header in the message part in Outlokk Express (in the To field there is nothing):

Let me ask this...

Is this just occuring with Outlook? Or does it occur with other mail readers such as Eudora or Netscape??

I had some _serious_ problems trying to get Outlook to handle our weather reports, and the problem is it _really_ _really_ requires 100% valid headers for content/type.

If the mail works in other mail readers, either your copy of Outlook is old, and should be upgraded, or you need to look at the headers sent out BY Outlook to see what is missing from the headers being sent in, then duplicate it.

Most (all I've tested, actually) have dealt with missing/incomplete/too complete headers with no problem, defaulting to assuming what is coming in is standard text, unless told otherwise. Outlook, for whatever reason, seems to expect whatever is coming in to be some M$ proprietary format, as if they ruled the world :)

Anyway, this is a known problem with Outlook (at least all the developers I've talked with on this issue have had this problem until they worked backwards), and I think it even varies with the versions.

I'm not even sure if it's been "fixed" in current releases or not.

I think I posted (and some others did too) some headers that did work for outlook (and text/html mailings in general) awhile back in one of the Links SQL forums.

Hi,

Is this an issue with the latest beta? We've tested locally, and putting any sort of special characters like should cause the message to be encoded properly.

Cheers,

Alex

While we are on the topic of emails can someone try and help me?

When someone adds a link in my directory I just get a blank email which is supposed to contain the details for the submitted site. Also when I validate the link, the webmaster also receives a blank email with the subject: Yyour link has been accepted!

email-add.txt IS in the templates directory!

Also...I was looking at the SQL resources area and there was a mod to get new additions sent to your pager/phone and it said to add some code to the email sub in Links.pm so I went into Links.pm but could not find an email sub anywhere?

OH....also Im having trouble importing data from Links2 to Next Generation, I realise that the next beta will support this but is there anyway I can import immediately?

Am I going mad?

Paul.

Thanks
Paul Wilson.

Hi Paul,

Can you paste the full headers of the email message you got? Also, are you using the standard templates, or do you have custom templates?

If you download the latest version of Links SQL 2, it will import from all previous versions of Links.

The mods in the resource area will not work for Links SQL 2.

Cheers,

Alex

This is what I cut and pasted from the email:


From: paulwilson18@aol.com
Subject: Addition to Database: Audio-Grabber
To: links@audio-grabber.com
Content-Type: text/plain
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
X-Mailer: GT::Mail 1.014 (Site: http://www.gossamer-threads.com; OS: linux)
Mime-Version: 1.0


Is that what you needed?

Yeah...I am using customized templates and I thought that this may be the problem as I have had to alter a few of the other templates since I installed SQL as the add template for example wouldnt submit resources so I had to add name="add" in the submit field.

I downloaded Links SQL 2 two days ago and when I try to import I get this error:


Import error: CRITICAL ERROR OCCURED: Cannot open /home/audio/audio-grabber-www/defs/category.def: Resource temporarily unavailable at Links/Import/L2S2.pm line 10


...I have got this error each time Ive tried for the last two days!
The path to the def files is correct and all the def files and database files from my the old version of Links2 are in that folder.


Thanks
Paul Wilson.

Hi,

Can you try it with the standard set of templates. Also, if you could try it with several different email clients (or at least more then one) and let me know the results.

Cheers,

Alex
