    Issue with FP8 =========== IBM Domin 901 FP8 corrupts PDF attachments ============

    Vladislav Tatarincev  14 March 2017 17:26:06
    few our clients and we applied FP8 same day it was arrived.
    next day we have noticed that PDFs sent from us to other companies are corrupted.

    We have opened PMR with PMR since few our large clients reported similar behaviour.

    IBM Support has confirmed issue under SPR #TPONAKFJLP / APAR  #LO91828.
    901FP8 IF1 will be released shortly.
    In description we received from IBM seems this is because of disclaimer, but in our case we have no disclaimer.

    info from IBM Support. =====

    After upgrade to FP8, with disclaimers enabled, PDF attachments have  Content-Transfer-Encoding of binary and can't be opened.
    If the mail is sent without disclaimers added, the Content-Transfer-Encoding is Base64 and the attachment can be opened.

    Steps
    1. Apply 901FP8
    2. Enable disclaimers and apply a policy to add disclaimers for users
    3. Send a mail with a PDF attachment. Attachment will be encoded as application/octet-stream with
    Content-Transfer-Encoding of binary
    4. Disable disclaimers and resend the same mail. Attachment will be encoded as application/octet-stream with
    Content-Transfer-Encoding of base64
