There is a solution if you can convince the exploder admin in Strasbourg
to go along. The key that zmailer is looking for is probably the
8BITMIME responce to a EHLO esmtp message. If the mailer they're using
at Strasbourg is 8 bit clean, just add it to the section of code that
replies to the EHLO message and recompile. Many 8 bit clean mailers
don't send the 8BITMIME message because while they can handle 8 bit mail
the rfc for mailers handling this specifies they must also be able to do
multipart transforms when passing the mail to non 8 bit clean mailers
and most mailers don't. (and the ones that do, like zmailer, just seem
to piss people off)
