When I send a plain text message using Outlook.com (my Hotmail recently got upgraded to Outlook automatically), where the body is:
subscribe mailinglist-users firstname.lastname@example.org
the actual message sent is:
subscribe mailinglist-users email@example.com =
Note the "=" at the end of the message. I then get an automated message from the mailing list system that it doesn't recognise the format of my email:
>>>> subscribe mailinglist-users firstname.lastname@example.org = **** The address you supplied, email@example.com = **** does not seem to be a legal Internet address. You may have supplied **** your full name instead of your address, or you may have included your **** name along with your address in a manner that does not comply with **** Internet standards for addresses. **** It is also possible that you are using a mailer that wraps long lines **** and the end of your request ended up on the following line. If the **** latter is true, try using backslashes to split long lines. (Split the **** line between words, then put a backslash at the end of all but the **** last line.) **** subscribe: invalid address 'firstname.lastname@example.org ='
My question is, how do I stop these extra control characters from being silently added to the plaintext email?
I've already tried asking the same thing at http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windowslive/forum/mail-email/outlookcom-adds-extra-characters-in-plain-text/04c3ec7f-0c26-42d9-94f5-85a71536fe54?page=1
