No, the attachments were small, below are excerpts from the failure notice. I was attaching text files this time. My mailer
wrapped them into a octet-stream content type instead of text/plain. Earlier, it had rejected a tar.gz file for the same reason. I
switched preferences to uuencode and the rtems mailer liked that. Unfortunately, the cygwin archiver put the uuencode inline
instead of a link to the file, which was ugly in the archives. I went back to the default and decided to just reference the cygwin
archive this time.
If I had a better mail client [which shall remain nameless (as if you couldn't figure it out already... ;) ], I probably wouldn't
have these problems and be looking like a fool all the time.
I suppose there's a good reason for filtering out octet-stream attachments?
