RE: [Evolution] [Feature Request] tnef integration

ok guys,
I read all the comments and I still think that it's a good idea.
If only for the fact the you don't have to harrass the sender when his mail
settings are not 'correct', automatic conversion would work wonders for
usability and interoperability (and migration!)

whether a filter, plugin, or something entirely internal to evolution is
used is not really important, that should be an implementation detail :-)

Ok, why not integrate tnef conversion into Evolution???

Just wondering, Is there one tnef that actually 
integrates at the 
MTA level?

It doesn't. Only that I think if there's a way to put it 
there, those 
pesky attachments can come in cleaned up to users. (rather 
than force 
users to install plugins etc)

Ahah, I see.  Good question.  Well that plugin could be 
converted to do something like that as a filter.  Would be 
nice if it could happen before then though, although it would 
break digital signatures (if they're even supported in tnef).
