Hi Alberto,

Thanks for the examples.

My view is that the server through which your mail passes
disassembles the message and then doesn't reconstruct it
again properly, but instead creates a broken format.

Look at the format:


Content-Type: text/plain

Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=prova.xyz




Note the blank line between Content-Type and
Content-Transfer-Encoding. This is wrong, and is not written that way
by Claws Mail.

You can probably verify this by saving your sent mail and checking
the saved mail.

with regards
