Dear List,
I'm using Evolution version 3.10.4.  Sometimes when I send a groupe-mail the
recipients are unable to open enclosed pdfs, they come out asrows of numbers
after my note.
Since you are working in a Linux environment, how are you generating your PDFs
and/or are you forwarding PDFs from other sources?
I use PDFStudioPro to check my PDFs, especially those where I used LibreOffice
to generate the document and have LibreOffice export the document as PDF.
So after I draft the e-mail and attach the PDF files, I check each one to make
sure it is the right one and that it will open in the intended format.
I have a non-Linux PC (Win 10) with Outlook and Adobe Acrobat DC.  If in doubt I
will send the e-mail first to an e-mail account that is only on that PC and make
that those opening the document with an Adobe product can read it.

Please look at the above message, which I have quoted in its entirety
exactly as I received it from the list. Can anyone tell, without
reading it, where the original message ends and the reply begins? Or
why the last lines are messed up? I notice there is also an HTML
version of the message in which the quoted material is in a different
colour and for some reason the extraneous footer material is absent,
but this distinction is lost in the plaintext version, which many
people on this list prefer for a variety of reasons.

Standard practice on mailing lists is to use indented quoting, which a)
sets off the quoted material even in plaintext, and b) allows multiple
levels of indent for long threads of quotes within quotes. It also
happens to be the default in Evolution.
