SMTP Log shows =?utf as subject line

Post by ladyinmt » Fri Jan 15, 2021 9:53 pm

Hi peeps,

I am running into something I haven't seen before. For some reason, the server is logging the subject as 'UTF' data instead of being human readable. Is there a switch I can flip to resolve this? Here's a snippit to show you what I mean:

Sorry, the logs are just plain ASCII, and don't decode the headers. We don't want to make the log files UTF8 and have to convert different charactersets to this yet, so if you need to use the decoded text you'd need to a script/program to convert it, sorry.
