Long lines error while setting the mail footer


When setting footer using the command:

/mithi/mcs/bin/setmailfooter.sh server -localtextfile /tmp/footer.txt

You might face an error :

Message=Failed to update the mail footer.
::The 'localtextcontent' has a line having more characters than allowed by SMTP in single line. Please split the lines accordingly!!!

Possible Causes

RFC states that a mail must wrap at 76 characters. So the footer cannot have lines longer than 76 characters.

Diagnosis and Resolution

Modify your footer content to have lines less than 76 characters.

Having long footer lines can also have side effect of incorrect wrapping in Mithi Web Mail.
