Description Joseph Carter 2003-01-04 19:52:43 UTC
Outhouse Express breaks with PGP-MIME and can't handle PGP Traditional either
because mutt uses the msg.pgp as the filename.

Line 1664 of pgp.c contains the problem.  Patch is trivial, but not attachable
from the bug submission page.

a better patch

My first patch only fixed the problem in some cases with some versions of
Outhouse Express.  This patch does exactly what is now done upstream in mutt

If I understand correctly, it means that mutt-1.5 does not need your patch ? Have you tried upgrading ? (I know, I know, it's a "beta" version)
Comment 4 Joseph Carter 2003-06-25 20:55:54 UTC
Indeed, a better solution than my patch would be to backport the PGP/MIME changes from 1.5.  Rather than do that, I have simply started using 1.5, which is a reasonably nice client and has never done anything wrong/unstable.
Comment 5 Aron Griffis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-02-11 09:00:47 UTC
since mutt-1.5.x is marked stable, this bug is no longer applicable
