php mail() randomly appends "%20" to my emails

Hi everyone,

I have a mailing list generated from php and sent out by mail().

But i often have broken graphics due to the fact that it randomly
appends %20 to the html output!

Anybody has the same issue?

I didnt notice something like that but it sounds like a multipart
or MIMIE issue to me. Check out http://www.php.net/mail for some

It seems more likely that the *input* HTML is broken. Check there's no
whitespace between the URL and the closing quote mark.

Are you claiming that the text is quoted-printable? Are you sure it is
really quoted-printable?

You haven't given us any code or even examples of the problem. Nonetheless
I suspect you are somehow urlencoding spaces in filenames or paths ---
perhaps ones you don't realized are there because they are at the end,
so 'some/path/ ' . 'mypic.jpg' gets urlencoded to /some/path/%20mypic.jpg'.
Try using 'trim' on everything you can think of, and don't urlencode urls
unless you have reason to think they may have characters that need escaping.

If that doesn't seem to do it, you might try posting some actual examples of
the errors you get or even suspicious areas of code.

And, oh, yeah, people with more brains than free time to read spam, filter
their mail to send html mail right to the old bit bucket.

Owing to googlegroups not screening users to eliminate spammers and other
USENET abusers, I do not see most posts from googlegroups.

I believe this question has been asked before, but I haven't found the solution to it. I've given up on the php mail() function (doesn't work fast enough for sending large amounts of HTML mails). Instead, I'd like to throw all my mails into the mail queue. I'm running sendmail on freeBSD and imagine that I should be able to use the exec() command.
