I've been noticing an irregular bug when posting to FMS with ff.

Sometimes (most of the time), the message body does not make it. A small percentage of the time it does.

I believe I have found the problem:

When ff uses mime encoding, it wraps the body as necessary. It would seem that the randomly generated 'boundary' sometimes contains strings that stop FMS from processing the post. This results in a blank message.

By disabling mime encoding in ff (in Global Settings), the problem seems resolved.

I have done this on retrobbs II. I will continue further testing.
