LO93522: HANDLE SMALL BINARY INLINE MIME SECTIONS
Direct links to fixes
Closed as program error.
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.
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.
Very small binary data may be inlined in the mail body. The Traveler server was not handling this correctly.
The Traveler server has been updated to handle this scenario correctly.
This fix will be included in IBM Traveler 220.127.116.11 and all future releases. For the latest available maintenance release see this technote: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg24019529
