sure . I sftp'd the file from one system to the other
When "cat" the file it looks OK

>2. Are the locale settings the same on both systems?
Should be checked. However mail should be independent since you do not know
anything of the recieving system

>3. Define unreadable. What _exactly_ is wrong with the email?
Just a bunch of "random" characters.

>4. Perhaps the OpenSuse list would be a better place for this?
Agreed. Note that I posted it there and send an CC to the Fedora list.
Guess, who answers first and wgy I love Fedora so much and do not like my
university forcing Opensuse on me.
