Hi all !

Our manager decided to upgrade our server versions, and we are
rewriting a master piece of the files.

Versions we have :

1. Linux version 2.6.18-164.el5 ( (gcc
version 4.1.2
20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-46)) #1 SMP Thu Sep 3 03:33:56 EDT 2009

2. PHP 5.1.6 (cli) (built: Apr  7 2009 08:00:04)
Copyright (c) 1997-2006 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.1.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2006 Zend Technologies

3. Mail from mailman-2.1.9


The problem we have relates to emails. We do not receive properly the
HTML emails.

First : the sender name is not mentioned.
Second : the HTML content does not appear as there is a line added :
"Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"

These problems appear when emails are sent to the addresses from
domains hosted on this new upgraded server.

When, we redirect emails to other email addresses : that works.

So, we played with the PHP code send_email function but that lead to
nothing. There might be somewhere a configuration info saying :
- allow the sender name to appear = yes
- allow the server not to add "Content-type: text/html;
charset=iso-8859-1" and "have the user view the HTML normally" = yes

Searching solutions did not lead to success.

This is so important to have fine HTML emails and we are addressing
our best regards for your help from your knowledge and experience to
that matter.

Sadly they didn't do that earlier.

Maybe you should update to a newer version? 2.1.13 has been out since 22nd of

Why not join the mail list and ask the questions about how to configure to get
things to work properly?

There are far more people there who use mailman and of course you have access
to the developers there too.

Personally, I spam value HTML mails a lot higher than other mail and I alwys
select to get plain text mails if possible to choose.

Thanks very much, we will go to the GNU organization from the man of
the Mail, Mailman, also, enjoying the nice poems from Barry Warsaw,
and some of his little songs as well, before having operating answers,
and proven solutions.
