However, this is a real problem if the text file contains the string "From" as the first word on a line (something that happens in my files quite often). In this cirsumstance, many mail servers will change the "From" to ">From". Archiving the text file first is not really feasible as many of my recipients do not have the tools (or technical skill) to un-archive. An option to force uuencoding for ALL files (and not just "binary" files) would be welcome. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Attach a text file with the word "From" as the first word on a line. 2. Mail it someone. 3. Actual Results: You will (probably) see the "From" changed to ">From". Expected Results: Allow me to force the attachment to be uuencoded.
The three bugs in comment #1 appear to be about escaping "From" in an attachment. There are other problems (see bug #249049 for an example) with broken clients that we all have to put up with if we want to realisticly interact with the rest of the world.
