[M-Dev] Re: GPG (and S/MIME)

Like I said -- if you just put the basic wxExec functionality in
there, GPG support will be easy, and you can leave it to others like
myself.  The two solutions (repeat, repeat) are not mutually
exclusive.

I'm not trying to say that S/MIME == PGP and don't follow how you
extracted that from my comments.  What I am saying is that, however
interesting a development project it may be, it is not anywhere near
the market penetration (hence importance) of plain old PGP.  You have
not persuaded me that S/MIME is anywhere near as important in an email
client.

Moreover if I want to send a message to someone on MailVault or
HushMail, I need to create (generate) OpenPGP messages, not just read
them.

 Ok, fine.

 I.e. something like:

install_strip:
        $(MAKE) INSTALL_STRIP="-s" install

?

 I don't see any other way but I'm far from being a make expert...

 This is bad news -- it used to work in the past. I must have used Purify
on M a few months ago for the last time but it always worked flawlessly.
Just a hint: have you used /FIXED:NO option to the linker? It is required
by Purify.

 Thanks,

 Ok, this indeed explains it -- thanks a lot for taking time to investigate
it. We always use "\r\n" for the outgoing message, regardless of where does
it go (SMTP server or local MTA).

 Yes, sure. I'll fix soon as it should be quite easy.

 However I'm afraid this doesn't explain the problems reported by Alan G
Isaac as he is under Windows and so probably doesn't have any local MTA
(and if he did, it would be using "\r\n" line termination anyhow). So there
is some other problem as well -- but it's already good to know about this

FYI the exim command line option is -dropcr, so a local MTA command of

/usr/local/sbin/exim -t -dropcr

(or whatever path to exim you're using) will clean up the extra cr
characters. i have no idea what you'd do with sendmail, but it likely has
something.

install_strip patch


Hi

I managed to find a way to do it by environment variable passing to the sub
makes instead of by argument passing, the problem with the argument passing
was that make proceeded with failures all the time or behaved strangely.
I will write a small tech note on make and configure etc tomorrow.

M going into a loop

Hi

I got M going into a loop while downloading (or filtering) messages.
I had to use mozilla to empty the mailbox and afterwards it was ok.
This may be related to the frankenstein messages problem.

Here is the gdb trace, I hope it helps:
