Description: ------------ First of all thank you for providing a great tool for me to use. I have found Mail_IMAP easy to use and follow and am making good progress using it on PHP5. Now to the problem I am having. Certain email types are not being parsed correctly by the program. It does not transfer all of the details of the message and produces the error notice "Fallback pid used for mid: ". I have attached a cut-down version of the message showing you the headers and mime parts.

Hi, thanks for the bug report. Please forward problem messages to demo at smilingsouls dot net, where I may test the message using my own debugging tools. When you forward the message, make sure that it maintains the same structure in the forwarded message as you are now seeing, e.g. don't attach it to another message. This makes things much easier for me. Regards, Richard York

I just forwarded you the email so you can have a look at it. I forwarded a copy to myself and confirmed that it has done the same thing so you should have no worries reproducing the error.

Does this bug still exist because I'm having the same problem with the latest version of Mail_IMAP. I have a message that is experiencing the same issue. Here it is a stripped down version of what I'm getting: Return-Path: <> Delivered-To: Received: (qmail 13404 invoked by uid 89); 9 Feb 2006 05:57:51 -0000 Received: from ( by with SMTP; 9 Feb 2006 05:57:51 -0000 Received: from [] (really []) by (InterMail vM. 201-2131-123-102-20050715) with ESMTP id <[]> for <>; Thu, 9 Feb 2006 01:01:10 -0500 Mime-Version: 1.0 (Apple Message framework v746.2) To: Dean Spammer <> Message-Id: <> Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary=Apple-Mail-25-96473172 From: John Spammer <> Subject: Taboo Tan Date: Wed, 8 Feb 2006 22:02:26 -0800 X-Mailer: Apple Mail (2.746.2) --Apple-Mail-26-96473174 Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64 Content-Type: application/applefile; name="taboo.jpg" Content-Disposition: inline; filename=taboo.jpg AAUWBwACAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMAAAAJAAAAPgAAAAoAAAADAAAASAAAAAkAAAACAAAA UQAAvqpKUEVHOEJJTQQAdGFib28uanBnAAABAAAAvjwAAL08AAAAbgAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABQT QWRvYmUgUGhvdG9zaG9wIDcuMAAAKVApUAAAAAAAaQCAABEC/wwA//4AAABIAAAASAAAAAAAAABp AIAAAAAAAKEB8gAWOEJJTQAAAAAAAABpAIBHcolwaIGBrwABAAoAAAAAAGkAgIIAAAAm6gAAAAEA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAEAAAAAAAGkAgAAA AwAAAAAAAAAAVmpwZWcAAAAAAAAAAAABAAFhcHBsAAAAAAAAAwAAgABpAEgAAABIAAAAACZPAAEM --Apple-Mail-26-96473174--
