#289 closed bug (fixed)

Description

YAM 2.8-dev [OS4/PPC]

When you press the "edit"-button with an email in the sent folder, the "From"-field will we overwritten and is not kept as it is done when you press "edit" in the outgoing-folder.
Think the set "value" should be kept there, too.

(In [5804]) * YAM_FI.c: opening the search window from the toolbar or the global menu will now use the current folder as default folder to be searched in. Having no folder to be searched in is quite unintuitive and leads to confusion if the user is sure that some mails must be found but don't get found as YAM does not search anywhere. This closes #289.

Sorry, closed the wrong bug by accident.

Just to get this right, before sending the mail for the first time you modified the "From" field on the Options page of the write window, correct? But how is it possible to sent off such a mail without getting an error from your SMTP server?

My SMTP Server (Arcor/Vodafone) accepts any (valid?) email-address as from.
E.g. I use my own domain like bla@… and not at @arcor.de all the time.
And when I write to a company I use special (unique) "bla"-parts (hopping to track back spam ;)), all valid, though.

So I would be p... if the server would reject them all. 8)

Replying to padrino:

I would consider this a severe security issue. Anybody is able to impersonate as you and can send mails under your name/address.

At least GMX's and web.de's SMTP servers don't accept mails which don't belong to the user who has logged in right before sending the mail.

Though this might possibly be dangerous/abused, but I don't think YAM needs to take care of this.
This can be very usefull (e.g. my wife and I share the same account, as she is not "into computers" an additional one is not needed. And when she writes something she just edits the part before the "@" as the rest is the same.)
Same for me when I use the "anti company spam trick".

YAM has always been flexibal (and powerful?) in that matter and it would just be consitent if it was for this case/folder, too.

  • Status changed from reopened to closed

(In [5850]) * YAM_WR.c: editing a mail in the outgoing folder as new will now leave the From: and ReplyTo: field as they are. This closes #289.
