Subject [jira] Commented: (JAMES-52) 8bitmime capabilities missing
Date Sat, 11 Jun 2005 19:48:47 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-52?page=comments#action_12313376 ] 

Hontvari Jozsef commented on JAMES-52:
--------------------------------------

I think this is simply a bug in IIS. If IIS supports 8bitmime then it must be able to forward
(and convert) it to non-8bitmime mail servers. If it can't convert it to 7-bit, then it doesn't
really support 8bitmime even if it falsely announce support. The same is true for James, it
is not enough to announce accepting 8bitmime, James must also be able to convert it to 7 bit
for other servers if it is necessary.
