Error description

  • When an email contains a small binary inline MIME section, the
    Domino mail server stores the binary data directly in the email
    instead of creating a separate file to hold the data.  Traveler
    mishandles such small binary inline MIME sections when
    transferring the email to mobile devices, causing the data to
    be lost.  This fix changes Traveler to change the small binary
    inline MIME section into an attachment, so it will be sent to
    the mobile device during sync.
    

Local fix

  • It is possible to configure Domino to never store the data
    inline, using notes.ini value MIMEForceAttachments.  If it's
    set to 1, all non-text parts are 'forced' into attachments.  If
    it's set to 2, all non-text parts are force into attachments
    and, in addition, text parts which have a filename specified
    are forced into an attachment.  However, there is a performance
    penalty for doing that: it's faster to get the data from the
    Body item than it is to get the filename from the Body item and
    then find & open the DB object.
    

Problem summary

  • Very small binary data may be inlined in the mail body.  The
    Traveler server was not handling this correctly.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Traveler server has been updated to handle this scenario
    correctly.
