Problem talking to smail 3.1.29


I'm running zmailer 2.99.27 on my linux workstation. I send a mail
to a mailing list run by smail and and the mail was received broken
from the list members.

Here is the smtp log:

00318Q0000240297r       220 basis.Desk.nl Smail3.1.29.1 #3 ready
00318Q0000340297w       EHLO frob.mlm.extern.lrz-muenchen.de

00318Q0000840297w       MAIL From:<andi@frob.mlm.extern.lrz-muenchen.de>

00318Q0001040298w       RCPT To: XXXX
00319Q0001740298r       250 Ok
00319Q0001840298r       250 Ok; can accomodate 3156 byte message

00319Q0002040298w       .
00318Q0001140298r       250 <XXXX> ... Recipient Okay

And one of the list members wrote me that the resulting message
contained these headers:

[Charset UNKNOWN-8BIT unsupported, skipping...]
X-Warning: Original message contained 8-bit characters, however during
           the SMTP transport session the receiving system was unable to
           announce capability of receiving 8-bit SMTP (RFC 1425-1428),
           and as this message does not have MIME headers (RFC 1341) to
           enable encoding change, we had very little choices.
X-Warning: We ASSUME it is less harmfull to add the MIME headers, and
           convert the text to Quoted-Printable, than not to do so,
           and to strip the message to 7-bits.. (RFC 1428 Appendix A)
Fake-Sender: andi@frob.mlm.extern.lrz-muenchen.de

Is it possible that zmailer sent 8BIT Mimemail to the smail host
even though smail doesn't support ESMTP? The mail was send with
GNUS 5.3.


|andi@mlm.extern.lrz-muenchen.de     Nonsense is better than no sense at all.
