    I am seeing two issues with mail.app after upgrading to Leopard.

    1. I see some email details which should not appear. It looks like:

    Content-Type: text/plain;
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable


    This is not from any one user, or always with the same user. It seems random. I am using IMAP to my corporate exchange environment.

    The other issue, when someone attaches a document and I get the issue above, it comes over as what I can guess is ACSII.

    Here is a snippit:

    style=3D"FONT: 7pt 'Times New Roman'">    =20
    </SPAN></SPAN></SPAN><SPAN style=3D"FONT-SIZE: 8pt"><FONT=20
    face=3D"Century Gothic">Advanced routing<o:p></o:p></FONT></SPAN></P>
    <P class=3DMsoNormal=20
    style=3D"MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt 0.5in; TEXT-INDENT: -0.25in; mso-list: l0 =
    level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in"><SPAN=20
    style=3D"FONT-SIZE: 8pt; mso-fareast-font-family: 'Century Gothic'; =
    mso-bidi-font-family: 'Century Gothic'"><SPAN=20
    style=3D"mso-list: Ignore"><FONT face=3D"Century Gothic">14.</FONT><SPAN =

    This above document is from an excel attachment.

    So the weird thing is that she sent the attachment again and it came in just fine. Once again, this is not tied to a user OR certain mail folder. Seems random. When I open Outlook over the Web, I can get the attachment just fine.

    Thought? :eek:

    There seem to be a hell of a lot of bugs in Leopard Mail. I had my own thread going on here regarding Leopard Mail not getting the "read" flag from the IMAP server; ultimately there was nothing I could do, but I did isolate it to Leopard Mail. There have been a lot of issues with it. Fortunately in the upcoming 10.5.1 update, Mail issues are high on the fixlist. No mention of specific, of course (as usual), but I'm hoping this crap gets taken care of.
