gnus-summary-save-article-mail destroys MIME formatting


From: Joshua D. Guttman
Subject: gnus-summary-save-article-mail destroys MIME formatting
Date: Fri, 6 Jun 2003 12:23:02 -0400 (EDT)

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.2.1 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
 of 2003-02-17 on divan.mitre.org
configured using `configure  --prefix=/afs/rcf/apps/unsupported/emacs-stuff'
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: nil

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

In the gnus summary buffer, C-o executes
gnus-summary-save-article-mail.  This saves the message to an mbox of
the user's choosing.

However, the resulting message does not contain many headers, in
particular not the MIME content type header such as 

Content-Type: multipart/mixed;
 boundary="------------1028C4D2E56CFC00092ED84E"

As a consequence, the message is no longer useful if it contains MIME
contents.  For instance, forwarding it will be useless to most
recipients.  

Thanks very much.
