Hm ... was this supposed to be there?  I only ask because if it wasn't
and you're using 1.7, we should fix that.

Sigh. I guess I should have asked Anthony Bentley why he added -notls
since he started that.  But I think Ralph covered that pretty well; to
align with best current practice we changed the default SMTP submission
port to 587.  You do not need to add -notls.

Um, wow.  A Content-Type of binary/ ????

I am curious .... if you grep through config.status for the following


What do they return?  It might be something like

        file --brief --dereference --mime-type

And what happens when you run that command on the file test/mhbuild/nulls ?
