[using Hylafax 4.2.1 on Solaris 7]

The paging service we're just started using (vodafone in the UK) won't accept messages via their dialup TAP service which contain a newline in the body of the message - fails with INVALID MESSAGE ...

<-- <25:\002XXXXXXXX\015hello\012\015\00347;\015>

That's the result of doing ...

echo hello | sendpage -p v1

How about: echo -n hello | sendpage -p v1

There seems to be an issue with communication between the client and the server if you try that - it comes back with the message with the request id but never actually runs the job - as far as I can tell the body of the message is never accepted by the Hylafax server.

Of course there are lots of ways to work round this problem (for example sendpage -p v1 `cat /etc/motd` works fine). _However_ I'd rather not have to tweak the scripts which use sendpage if this can be fixed at the server end. If the protocol says that the TAP client shouldn't send unescaped linefeeds as part of the message then it really shouldn't - even if many (most?) TAP servers don't seem to care :->
