     We are using Hypermail 2b30 on Windows NT and I faced this problem.

Hypermail was not including my header and footer files. After debugging for some time, I noticed that the the 'getfilecontents' function
in file.c was failing. When further investigated, I found that beacause of
the windows format of the header and footer files, this function was failing.

    Hence, as a stop gap arrangement, I wrote a small C utility to convert
(to remove the '\n' characters) the files into unix format. Then they started working fine.

  Now my question is

  1. Is it a known bug?
  2. If not how should we fix it?
