Dtmail May Truncate the Body of an Email Message (4133964)

Dtmail may truncate the body of an email message if the message body contains non-printable characters.

The following warning message is displayed:

Message contains a binary code which is invalid as a character in the
current locale. For this reason part of this message may be truncated.
If you run CDE in the same locale that this message came from, you
will be able to view the entire message.

If an email message is created in one locale and then emailed to another locale, email may be truncated because it contains a binary code that is invalid as a character in the locale to which the email was sent.

For example, this bug may occur when:

Workaround: Perform the following steps:

  1. Exit CDE.

  2. Log into CDE in the locale where the email was composed


    quit dtmail and set the environment variable LANG to the correct locale; then restart dtmail.

Note -

The same data that is sent as an attachment is not truncated when viewed.
