Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1288726
Handling of IDN domains are incomplete
Last modified: 2016-07-19 14:34:28 EDT
Description of problem:
Using evolution for IDN mail domains is not possible, because the support is incomplete.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Send an mail from an IDN mail account.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add an new mail account for an IDN like foo@müller.de
2. send an mail
The mails is reject by the receiver, because the header are incorrect.
Send mails will work.
When I look in the source code of the mail, all header field, will contain the IDN and not the puny code version of the mail domain.
The RCPT TO:<XXX> stuff while transmit is correct. Here the IDN will be translated to puny code.
Thanks for a bug report. This wasn't discussed much in the time of the fix for an upstream bug , though I think the message headers are not supposed to be puny-coded, the puny-fication of the headers is left up to the clients. I do not know why the receiver rejects the message, especially when the SMTP sending part in the evolution tells the SMTP server to use the puny-fied version of the domains.
As you mention RCPT TO:, I suppose you use SMTP too.
Do you know the exact error message with which the receiving part rejected the message, please?
