When marketing doesn’t read what they send via email

I am subscribed to the TAROM (Romanian Airlines) Newsletter which is sent approximately once a month. Each month I receive the same corrupted email which looks like the one in the picture: Why is this happening ? Simply because they add some newlines in the wrong places. Actually, it is enough only the first one to ruin everything. See the red arrows ? Those newlines shouldn’t be there. I wrote to Tarom (newsletter@tarom.ro) and they didn’t reply back. And they also didn’t fix the problem. This could’ve been avoided very easily if they just preview the newsletter before they mass mail it.

Bug or feature: Mime Type Detection

Also known as MIME Sniffing, this is a feature or bug in IE which is the only browser able to dynamically determine the content type of the document it loads. So, in this case, it detects a plain text document with HTML content instead of a an JPG header. And the content of the “JPG” file which is text/html: The URL was reported to Phishtank and CleanMX. The users of Avira Professional and Avira Premium Security Suite are protected if they use the latest Webguard signatures.
