Notes Client 8.5.2 Forwarded Mail Corrupted
Posted on 2011-03-24
What causes Internet mail corruption from Notes 8.5.2?
We run Domino 8.5.2 and 6.5.4. SMPT mail goes via the 6.5.4 server.
My mail is on the 8.5.2 server. When I forward mail outside of the business to an Internet address (e.g. to a Gmail account) the message that arrives is incomplete and garbled. It is especially likely to happen if the message being forwarded is complex and contains layout and graphics (the sort of thing Amazon may send). It lookes perfect in the 8.5.2 client. If I Click forward and add a few lines of simple text then forward it to an external address it usually comes up with a message headed "Multilingual MIME Warning" which asks me to choose a font (this is a sure sign things aren't going well). Having sent the messsage, when opened from the Sent folder it is corrupted. Layout has gone haywire and 60 to 80% of the test added is simply missing. The message looks exactly the same when it arrives at its destination (as it does from the sent folder)
My problem has existed for some months, today a 2nd user reported the same thing. It's not just me now so now I'd better fix it!
