#385 closed enhancement (fixed)

YAM ignores headerlines starting with "newline"

Reported by: padrino Owned by:
Priority: undecided Milestone: YAM 2.8p1
Component: MIME handling Version: nightly build
Severity: major Keywords:

Release Notes:

fixed a bug in the mail header parsing routines where a header line starting with a newline cause problems.


I don't know if this is a bug, or fine due to definition, but YAM cannot/does not handle headerlines that start with newlines.


This is a subject

Will be displayed with "empty subject", whereas

SUBJECT: This is a

displays the complete string "This is a subject".

I don't know how the RFC s handle this case. I think Jens can give a better answer if this is valid or not.

  • Component changed from undefined to MIME handling
  • Milestone set to YAM 2.8p1
  • Status changed from new to accepted

I just checked a manipulated mail with ThunderBird and MS Outlook and both displayed a subject starting on a new line correctly. Hence I'd say YAM is at fault here.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from accepted to closed

(In [6579]) * YAM_MAf.c: reworked the mail header parsing to accept initial header lines without content. The content may now start on the next to be parsed line. This closes #385.

Mario, although this issue should be fixed now we still like to get some example mail for reference/evidence. Would you please provide one?
