When adding a signature, MailScanner adds this line:
But appearently this line also requires a charset-line.
Because later in the chain of sendmails, when the next receiving mailserver
doesn't accept 8-bit, this get added, and an exchange-server can't read the
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=unknown-8bit
X-MIME-Autoconverted: from 8bit to quoted-printable by
In comp.mail.sendmail I got this:
"Actually the fact that using MailScanner causes the problem implies that
it (or perhaps your configuration of it) is rather broken - either it
drops an existing charset= parameter that was correct, or it adds some
MIME-part that needs a charset= parameter (due to not being US-ASCII)
but doesn't have one, or it adds "raw 8-bit" text to a (non-MIME)
message that didn't have any originally. Or something like that.

Could we get this fixed? :-)
