I’m sending a file via email from a Mac (Snow Leopard) to another Mac (Lion).
It turns out that all the line feeds (0x0A) in the file transform into carriage returns (0x0D), effectively turning the original file into a completely different file.
Any ideas why something like this would take place?
This does not happen when the sender upload the file to the web, and the recipient then downloads the file using his web browser. It also doesn’t happen if the sender first ZIPs the file and sends it via email; the recipient gets the original file intact after unzipping the ZIP file. Is there something special about email transfers I should know about?
