Error description

  • Traveler does not support syncing mail with "uuencode" type
    encoding. Today, users may encounter unexpected behavior when
    trying to sync and read mails with this encoding type on
    Traveler devices (e.g. being unable to open and view
    attachments). Traveler will now better detect when a user
    attempts to sync one of these mails, and will present the user
    with a message stating that the encoding type is unsupported,
    and that the mail should be opened using Notes, iNotes, or Verse
    Web client instead.
    

Local fix

  • N/A
    

Problem summary

  • Uncommon scenario where an attachment is stored in an
    unsopported encoding format.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The IBM Traveler server was updated to correctly recognize the
    encoding format is not supported.
    

Temporary fix
