    Default attachment.pcx zypper mails

    Dear fellows,

    as asked in the "programming/cron jobs" forum (failed cron jobs send "attachment.pcx"? - openSUSE Forums): apparently, postfix treats mail bodies containing non-printable characters as a PCX attachment...

    Is that normal? Where can I configure whether my MTA turns such not-entirely-plain mail bodies into attachments, instead of sending it as-is?

    Thanks in advance for all ideas!

    As per the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), you can not send non-printable characters in the mail body without defining further mail-parts as attachment etc. If Postfix just send it as part of the mail content, such mails will be rejected by almost all of the servers and receivers as non-compliant.
