I enclosed a patch as a MIME attachment, so it probably didn't survive
an overzealous binary filter on some news servers.  Here's the original


In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
 of 2001-10-22 on defun.localdomain
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil
  value of $LANG: en_US
  locale-coding-system: iso-latin-1
  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t

When I use these settings:

     (setq message-send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it)
     (setq smtpmail-queue-mail t)

for sending mail with Gnus, every 8bit character in the mail is
preceded by a \201 when the mail is sent.  When I set
`smtpmail-queue-mail' to nil, the error doesn't occur.

Making `smtpmail-send-queued-mail' open the file with the queued mail
literally fixes the problem for me:
