mimePart.php - uncommon header encoding #1617
Reported by rosali on 23 Jun 2008 10:10 UTC as Trac ticket #1485151
mimePart.php function _buildHeaderParam encodes the Content-Type and the Content-Disposition header in an uncommon way. Neither RC itself nor f.e. Outlook express understands this encoded stuff.
I simply switched back to the old mimePart.php (before SVN 1530) which solved the issue for me!

It's RFC2231. Section 3. Parameter Value Continuations. The headers are looking good, but small number of servers and clients supports that feature. "IMAP4 [RFC-2060] servers SHOULD decode parameter value continuations when generating the BODY and BODYSTRUCTURE fetch attributes." but my dovecot don't do this.

[change is wrong for Content-Disposition header. Looks like different MIME headers need to be treated differently.
RFC2183 talks explictly about Content-Disposition and it says:
So ascii only characters should be shown as raw ascii without any encoding/quoting.
Currently roundcube encodes pure ascii headers using rfc2184 like this one:
while kmail for example does what RFC2183 says:

google mail uses qp encoding. Hm, the rfc2183 says:
but quoted-string is not "quoted-printable" stuff... and I'm lost on what's correct here.
