Summary: plain text digest bug in appending messages

Initial Comment:

Sometimes, messages are incorrectly appended in the plain digests, which cause 2 or more messages to be attached to 1. For example, I got a digest which mentions one message in the Topic list, but at the end of this message, the next message is "glued" to the bottom of it:

(...top of first message...)
---------------------------------
Do you Yahoo!?
Yahoo! Platinum - Watch CBS' NCAA March Madness, live on your desktop!From EMAILADDR at aol.com  Fri Mar 28 14:04:32 2003
Return-Path: <EMAILADDR at aol.com>
Delivered-To: fans at list.miss-janet.com
(...second message continues with all it's headers and content)

As you can see, the "From..." of the second message starts directly after the last character of the first message.

Here's a second example:
(... top of first message...)
peace out:
-oscarFrom EMAILADDR at aol.com  Tue Apr  1 15:04:42 2003
Return-Path: <EMAILADDR at aol.com>
Delivered-To: fans at list.miss-janet.com
(..second message continues...)

Again, the "From..." from the next message is glued to the previous message.

Is this a simple missing end of line issue or is it more complicated?
I can't seem to see a good pattern in it...


Ricardo.

Is the first message originally in quoted-printable, with no 
concluding blank line?

I have seen quite a lot of concatenated messages lately, and 
in every instance that I've checked the first message is QP, is 
multipart/alternative with the other part in html (stripped for 
digest), and has the boundary immediately after the last line of 
the QP part.

The problem affects MIME-digests as well as plaintext ones.

I have no clue how it might be fixed, or even where things are 
going wrong, but maybe someone else can get a handle on it 
from this info.
