Hi All,


Recently we deployed mailman V2.1.5 for our university, however we are
experiencing some teething problems with attachment.


An attachment with space in the long file name (45+) will lose it's file
extension due to wrapping in the mailman has caused Eudora clients NOT able
to open the attachment properly while Outlook always looks for the last dot
in the long file name and pose no problem in this issue. Can anyone have
similar experience or solution please give us some help.
