 Replying to [comment:7 Rezzy-dev]:
 > MacPorts didn't proceed to try to build the bogofilter dependency from
 the source. Instead the claws-mail installation failed on each occasion,
 with the error message that the expected binary package is missing (that
 it's an HTML file).

 If you got a checksum mismatch and a message saying, "The non-matching
 file appears to be HTML," that relates to the source tarball, not a binary
 package. It would also have pointed you to the MisbehavingServers wiki
 page, which lists several ways that can happen. One of them is indeed that
 a mirror serves a 404 page with a 200 response code. We could remove a
 misbehaving mirror from the list, but we would need to know which of the
 many mirrors it was.

 > So every user who tries to install claws-mail will experience this.

 Possibly every user who gets the download from the same mirror that you
 got it from.
