Description Janina Sajka 2007-06-03 20:21:51 UTC
Description of problem:
I've tried both 1.5.14-3 and 1.5.14-4 from updates on i386 and x86_64 via local console and ssh session.
On all three F-7 machines I've tried, mutt will not send mail. It returns 'bad idn' error, not liking my rednote.net domain. I've downversioned to the latest mutt from FC6 and all is OK.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):1.5.14-X

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Write an email
2.Attempt to send with 'y'
Actual results:
bad idn

Expected results:
mail sent

I can't reproduce the problem.

Can you please attach here your mutt config? Also how is set the LANG or
LC_CTYPE environment variable?

Comment 3 Janina Sajka 2007-06-06 15:43:50 UTC
OK, since I see no way to upload my .muttrc via http using either lynx or elinks,
and since I won't be able to use Firefox at least until I can build FF3 (for accessibility reasons), I've made this file
available on my web server. Please retrieve it from:

Sorry for the inconvenience and for the empty attachment. This is new ground for me.

Comment 4 Miroslav Lichvar 2007-06-06 16:00:59 UTC
Thanks. The cause of the problem is this line:
set charset="mutt-utf-8"

Please comment it out or change it to "utf-8". Mutt in FC-6 didn't support IDN,
so it didn't try to convert encoding of the address.

Comment 5 Janina Sajka 2007-06-06 16:55:50 UTC
Yes, that was it. Thank you and sorry for the alarm here on Bugzilla.
