We have a strange bug with replies from one authority in France (at least) that contain a PDF attachment. See https://madada.fr/demande/attribution_dun_marche_public_po#incoming-968
Specifically, their emails contain an invalid MIME type string, the excerpt below is from the link above, via admin / incoming emails / download.
-------------060005060401010509060003 Content-Type: text/html; <----- THIS LOOKS WRONG FOR A PDF name="RAO Drones lot 1-occ.pdf" Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64 Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="RAO Drones lot 1-occ.pdf" ============================================= The attached PDF itself is valid, I can open it, but somehow the sender's email client messes up the mime email content. Then Alaveteli follows that content type string, and sends the PDF as an HTML, ending up with the browser displaying garbage. As a side note, we have a censorship rule that is applied on the result, making things even worse. Our regex has a bug which I'll fix, but I don't think it should apply here at all, at least not the way it's done. Any suggestions about what to do about it? We will try to mention it to the ministry in question, but I suspect our chances of success are fairly low :/ Is there some sort of process to force alaveteli to consider an attachment as a different format than what it automatically guesses? Thanks! Laurent for team MaDada
