Description Pawel Salek 2004-10-02 17:49:06 EDT
Description of problem:
dovecot omits some spaces when constructing FETCH ENVELOPE response.
Error is obvious when one fetches also the field verbatim. For example:

. fetch 4375 (envelope body[HEADER.FIELDS (from)])
* 4375 FETCH (ENVELOPE ("Sat, 2 Oct 2004 21:47:27 +0200" "Re:
Compiling Snapshots for 2.6" (("Felix=?ISO-8859-1?Q?K=FChling?=" NIL
"fxkuehl" "domain")) ((NIL NIL "dri-devel-admin"
"lists.sourceforge.net")) (("Felix=?ISO-8859-1?Q?K=FChling?=" NIL
"fxkuehl" "domain")) (("Coulette David" NIL "david.coulette"
"ac-strasbourg.fr")) ((NIL NIL "dri-devel" "lists.sourceforge.net"))
NIL "<2efe3a3b44803f93.44803f932efe3a3b@ac-strasbourg.fr>"
"<20041002214727.5d8922ce.felix@trabant>") BODY[HEADER.FIELDS (FROM)] {59}
From: Felix =?ISO-8859-1?Q?K=FChling?= <fxkuehl@domain>
. OK Fetch completed.

The space between "Felix" and "=?ISO-8859-1?Q?K=FChling?=" is missing
in the envelope response.

The response returned by dovecot is not a correct MIME string which
makes it impossible to decode without implementing some workarounds.
The end result is that the user is presented with a garbled text.

I finally fixed this. When it has had more testing it could be
backported to 0.99.x:

Comment 2 John Dennis 2005-01-06 13:28:09 EST
Excellent timing Timo! I was just about to look at this myself. I 
think I'll wait and see how the testing goes and use the patch if all 
is well.

Along a similiar lines, I see 1.0-test is up to version 59, do you 
have a date when you expect 1.0 to released?
Comment 3 Timo Sirainen 2005-01-06 15:21:04 EST
Hopefully this spring. Keyword support is the last important missing
feature, it's maybe 70% done now in CVS. After that Dovecot is mostly
feature complete and I'll change the naming into 1.0alphaN and try to
avoid breaking anything badly.
Comment 4 John Dennis 2005-07-22 12:18:42 EDT
This was fixed in 0.99.14
