Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Application Express (formerly HTML DB) - Version 5.1.0 to 5.1.3.00.05 [Release 5]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The e-mail attachment generated by APEX is not in compliance with RFC 2045.

The standard RFC 2045 (https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2045.txt) describe on page 24 Base64 Encoding:
"The encoded output stream must be represented in lines of no more than 76 characters each."

The e-mail attachment coding generated by APEX sometime contains lines longer then 76 characters, thus the encoding is not compliant.
