I recently updated my system from 8.3 to 8.4, including update from TCPIP 5.6 to 5.7; also applied latest patches.
Since that update, Outlook displayes text-only - including the fuil header and un-tyranslated MOME attachements - in stead of splitting a message into header ()not shown in message window), HTML and non-HTML text, and attachements.
The (officcial) online documentaion is still related to 5.6 and is NOT updated to the changes in POP and SMTP (moving all coinfiguration into text files,...) but as far as I can see, the transsition is Ok., Stil, it doesn't work.
I'm using a web-based mail-client as wll, which is VMA-mail based, and that works just as it did before.
I have aded both SMTP and POP configuration files as translated in the update - nothing has been changed in these files except I masked location adat) - and the added files on the update and patches. The file also contains examples of maIl output before and after the upgrade (same source and destination).
What is required to have Outlook get it's messages (using POP protocol) as before?

Some extra data I forgot to mention.
I'm using a spam filter that scans mail (and adds header lines) in front of SMTP. I thought it might cause the problems since mail I send locally does not pass this filter and that mail displays correctly. However, the headers (as displayed in the webmail agent) show no indication of a reason - these are the same as before.

This POP3 server don't push the RFC mail headers from the mail*.mai file. I suggest to use IUPOP3 server or a yet another one: http://starlet.deltatel.ru/~laishev/work/pop3/

Switched to IMAP. Still some work to do but that does the job (though POP should be repaired to allow extension headers - (X-....) or documentation is updated so it works as in 5.6 (in this respect)

The specified POP template is not missing so much as it is not located where you might think it would be.

TCP/IP Services is somewhat unique in this template organization, as it does not extract and provide its template files as do VMS and some other layered product packages.
Some of documentation I've encountered is also not very good at referencing the presence of this TCP/IP template text library.
Today's Discoveries: the Lithium source code insertion tool doesn't work correctly around inserting text above the block, doesn't allow the inserted block to be removed easily, and the insertion popup box helpfully suggests a platform-specific control sequence for pasting text. (And what's with that stack-of-pancakes-with-a-dollop-of-butter icon for "spoilers"? That's seriously something that needs an icon in the control panel for posting to a computer-oriented forum? )
Edit: the spoiler tag does not work quite right, and the contents of the code insertion is showing as a blob of text.
Edit: the text between this and the above edit line vaporized.
