It's zmailer. Someone gave zmailer a message containing unlabelled
8-bit characters, and the site zmailer wants to deliver the message to
doesn't say it will accept 8-bit mail.
Zmailer wants to recode it as 7-bit before sending it to its
destination, and since the message isn't labelled zmailer doesn't know
what character set is used. This isn't an optimal situation, and
zmailer adds a warning to that effect.
You can do several things about it.
- Make sure you generate MIME-labelled mail. That's not too hard
with most clients. You can mostly make them say e.g.
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1
(substitute the character set in use in your organization) and it
will come out right. If your site habitually sends unlabelled
8-bit mail with several different character sets, you can't do
- Configure zmailer to send 8-bit mail to the receiving site even if
it doesn't announce 8BITMIME. You need an additional clause in
scheduler.conf with the same commands as smtp/* except that you
specify the -H command-line option to smtp. If you don't know what
sites accept 8-bit mail without announcing it, you can't do this.
- Remove the warning, it's in transports/libta/mimeheaders.c. I
don't recommend this - the problem will still be there.
