email not readable with RISC OS
I think this must be a Mess Pro problem. I have the current version.
I've just had an email from a friend in answer to one of mine. On looking
at it in Messenger all I get is 'sent from my new Samsung Tablet'. As
usual with emails sent from other OS, it also has attachments: Untitled (a
text file), Email/htm and Re_new...030920/eml (interpreted by Messenger as
a Data file; the 'Re_' is the subject of my original email).
The Text file and the HTML file both display just the 'sent from my new
Samsung tablet'. The Re_ file (opened with Shift double click) has two
blocks of code. The headers seem to be intact: the whole document has
One block of code has
The other block of code has the same except
Puzzle !: I note that if one saves an email out of the Messenger Incoming
mail display the saved file is given type eml. But if I try to change the
filetype of my Re_ file I'm told that this filetype is not recognized.
Transferring the Re_ file to my PC using the Uniprint system opens it in
Notepad, displaying exactly what RISC OS displays.
Puzzle 2: Transferring it with LanMan98 and then dragging it to the
Thunderbird icon opens it with the sender's intended message.
Hurrah, but what a complicated way of reading an email.
Has anyone any ideas for a work-around or even cure?
