I’ve set up my blog so it reads emails from an account on my server. When I send small posts (2 or 3 paragraphs) from my Blackberry in plain text it posts just fine. However, yesterday I sent my first “full post” and when I rain wp-mail.php it went to the mailbox, got the message but the message showed up as random characters.
Here is the original message which I’ve sent from my Blackberry and is sitting in the webmail of my server:

I’ve been the proud owner of my first brand new car – a Honda Civic – since June 2007. Overall I’ve been very pleased with it. Space-age looks inside and out, nice to drive, spacious, and economical.
Economical until the end of September that is, when the economy started to drop from 38mpg/tank down towards the 32mpg mark. This was noticed in tandem with a stutter at certain rev ranges. Much investigation ensued from the garage until they found that the stutter was an “engine characteristic” of the VTEC cutting in and out.
Not happy with this answer I test-drove a similar Civic and sure enough it had the characteristic, but not like my car. More checks showed the valve clearances to be too big and a cracked spark plug. But still the stutter remains. Now Honda are promising a software update in January to “fix” the problem. We shall see.
To compound my misery I got rear-ended and needed a new bumper. Because of the newness of the car I thought Honda would do the work best. Wrong. The new bumper, sprayed with the same batch of paint by Honda in Swindon looks nothing like the rest of my car.
And to cap it all yesterday the car started making a rubbery squeak from the front-right area. I found a trapped and detached door seal, but that didn’t cure it and a further test-drive reveals a suspension problem!!!
So in January my car is going into the garage to have the VTEC looked at again, the bumper redone, the suspension fixed plus a couple of other small snags. There is also a recall out on a dodgy handbrake. And they say Honda is the height of reliability?
So, by the end of January I will have a reliable car I can be happy with again. Failing that they can have the keys back. I’m beginning to realise how Jenson Button felt last season…
Oh, and Happy New Year to you all!
When I run wp-mail.php I get the following page:
Content-type: text/plain, Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64, boundary:
And thats what goes on the blog. Interestingly, using Horde to view the mail when I view the message source I get the same gibberish.
Can anyone help or advise what may be causing this? I want to be able to use my Blackberry to blog while away from home, this looks like it may be difficult!
