[bugs #8387] Full Item Snapshot:
Submitted by: Dr. Christian BÃ¶ttger
On: Wed 03/31/04 at 10:57
Item Group: 0.9.16.000 release
Severity: 7 - Major
Priority: 7 - High
Assigned to: None
Component Version: CVS
Platform Version: GNU/Linux - SuSE
Summary: special language characters in email headers and imap folders
Original Submission: handling of non-ASCII characters in email seems to be
1) if the Account name contains special characters, the From: header seems to
be formatted in a wrong way. Example:
Account name: Christian BÃ¶ttger
From: "Christian =?iso-8859-1?Q?B=C3=B6ttger?=" <address@hidden>
This is displayed correctly in Thunderbird and Mozilla, but is broken in e.g.
phpGW/email itself, Outlook, KMail and Evolution. Outlook e.g. displays it as
Christian BÃÂ¶ttger address@hidden
I'm not an encoding guru, but there must be something wrong in phpGW/email...
b) If e.g. an Exchnage 5.5 server is used as IMAP server (e.g. for migration
purposes) and the folder names contain language specific characters or stuff
like | (which is allowed and common in Exchange), the select boxes for "select
a folder" or "move to folder" dont't work. Either there is nothing shown at
all, or there is just one selction, e.g. "(24)", which seems to be the no. of
one of the folders.
after viewing any email or deleting one or writing a new one, the following
error shows up (3 times in the main window and 3 times on top of the screen):
From: Parse error: parse error, expecting `']'' in
eval()'d code on line 1
As soon as this error appears, the select boxes all of a sudden show all IMAP
But: all special characters are preceeded by a non-printable character shown as
an empty square.
And: after the next refresh (which is done periodically by the email app), the
error goes away, and the select boxes are empty again.
This seems to be a hell of a mess in the email app code.
BTW: when using the folders module (with the pb template), no IMAP folders are
shown there. Just one email-icon without a name which links to the inbox.
