I will rewrite some code so that we do not have a difference between the apple attachments and other platforms. Do you have an exampple of what you specifiy in email2trac.conf:

  • strip_attachments : ....

comment:6 Changed 11 years ago by otto@…


currently i have just set

strip_attachments: application/pgp-signature

but it should work with comma-seperated values also...

comment:7 Changed 11 years ago by bas

I used you suggestion a made some small adjustments. So the old code for apple attachments is integrated in this new setup. I renamed strip_attachments to:

  • strip_content_types

It is still atring seperated by ','.

  • added new configuration parameter, strip_content_types thanks to Otto. eg:
