I am testing a 3rd party email server for receiving SMS text messages and email from cell phone/blackberry.
Email messages look fine and SMS messages are received as expected but the message content as keyed in from the blackberry looks encoded. It is definitely not human readable. The message header for the SMS text message being routed through Exchange 2007 looks like the following;
Received: from xxxx.alltel.net (xxx.xx.xx.xxx) by xxxx.xxxx.com (xxx.xxx.xx.xx) with Microsoft SMTP Server id x.x.xxx.x; Mon, 27 Oct 2008 08:51:50 -0600 Received: from unknown (HELO icccccgfe) ([xx.xxx.x.xx]) by xxxx.alltel.net with ESMTP; 27 Oct 2008 09:53:59 -0500 From: "firstname.lastname@example.org" <email@example.com> To: Well Info <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Mon, 27 Oct 2008 08:51:50 -0600 Subject: Thread-Index: Ack4Q4w1M8SVrZiVQHi35YqEHzNnag== Message-ID: <vvvvvvvvvvv.nnnnnnnnnnnn.JavaMail.root@ifscccccccfe> Accept-Language: en-US Content-Language: en-US X-MS-Exchange-Organization-AuthAs: Anonymous X-MS-Exchange-Organization-AuthSource: pureems.pai1us.com X-MS-Has-Attach: X-MS-Exchange-Organization-SenderIdResult: None X-MS-Exchange-Organization-SCL: 5 X-MS-Exchange-Organization-PCL: 2 X-MS-Exchange-Organization-PRD: message.alltel.com X-MS-TNEF-Correlator: received-spf: None (ccccc.vvvvvv.com: email@example.com does not designate permitted sender hosts) x-policy: RELAYLIST-$RELAYED Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8" Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64 MIME-Version: 1.0
Is the Transfer-Encoding correct for the need of my 3rd party app to see the message in a human readable format? ie. ASCII?
