** Observed with 8/13/99 Win32 build ** ** This bug was split from Bug 11763 which conflated 2 bugs into one and was confusing. When replying or forwarding messages containing non-ASCII body text on IMAP servers, auto-quoting produces broken text. Here's a set of steps to reproduce this bug: 1. Select a JPN msg (HTML or plain)containing a Japanese header & body text with no attachment 2 [details] [diff] [review]. Now reply or forward (w/ auto auto) either under HTML or plain text mail send. 3. You see that the Message window body seems to be in raw JIS rather than in Japanese. Note: header quote is not working -- this is a known bug. But the body text quote should show in Japanese. Note 2: I tried Latin1 body text and this seems to be working in quoting both body and Subject header. Note 3: quoting UTF-8 body does not work correctly. Here's rhp's comment on this bug from Bug 11763: ------- Additional Comments From email@example.com 08/13/99 12:20 ------- Ok, here is the deal. The quoting we do with IMAP is a hack that is guaranteed not to work for Japanese or any other non us-ascii text...and it didn't ever work. I am waiting on a stream routine from mscott that won't be in the product until M10.
Assigning myself as QA contact.
Rich, (I don't profess to understand this bug) why will hooking up to the stream converter fix this problem? (I do have that bug in on my M10 plate). Is it part of your hack that will go away when we have that in place?
Yes, the hack that is in place is digging through the tempMessage.eml file on disk to try to snarf some body text. This is because the SaveToDisk() method is only implemented for local folders (not IMAP or NTTP). When the stream is in place, the hack goes away for good. - rhp
Uh, that's NNTP :-)
Reassign to mscott to hook up streams from IMAP and NNTP to compose backend.
Triage to M11
*** Bug 13382 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Kat, can you check out this bug again and see if the problem is still there? Rich mentioned in this report that he needed some new interfaces from me. I've done that and with some help from jefft, quoting for reply or forward no longer uses a temp file. Rich's comments made me thing that things will just work once I did that. So this bug may already be fixed.
I got a related bug 14189 today. Although I cannot reproduce it but it happens randomly. So it looks like not completely fixed.
I think "randomly" is a charitable word. It happens at least 50% of the time with me. Sometimes text get quoted all right and sometimes they are broken/corrupted. This applies to Latin 1, JPN, UTF-8, etc. text body.
Scott, Bug 14189 applies to both IMAP & POP3 mail quoting. Does your fix here affect POP3, too? I thought this bug was about IMAP quoting and Rich's and your fix applied only to that.
It's entirely possible that this bug is a dup of 14189 (or vice versa). quoting for reply and forward runs through the same code for both pop and imap now. To me, I would think this bug should happen to both the imap and pop case.
(target milestone is M11 or M12 - add to mail beta tracking bug)
I18N: I don't know enough about what's going on here I think. To my ignorant eyes, this bug and Bug #8405 seem to be the same problem. (Please ignore the imap specific nature of this bug..I think the problem is in both pop and imap). Can we mark one as a dupicate of the other? Which one do you think has the better problem statement? Thanks for the help!
For 8405, I attached a screen shot and the data. The first message contains Japanese both subject and from address but only subject shows and address is all truncated (shows only dots), not sure wheather converted wrong or truncated problem. This bug shows not dots but something like raw UTF-8 string. So looks different from 8405 but could be the same internally, I am not sure. I think we better have a screen shot of this too. This is reproducable using the i18n smoke test. Marina, could you attach a screen shot for this, I cannot reproduce this bug?
Reviewing this bug at this juncture, it seems to me that the bug as I described 8/13/99 no longer exists. HTML quoting of Japanese is OK now. It is certainly not quoting raw JIS (with all MIME-encodign intact). There is Forward/inline bug which shows raw B-encoded ISO-2022-JP headers but that is covered by Bug 17034. That leaves body corruption in Plain Text mail which is covered by Bug 15465. In any case the kind of dichotmy I noted between IMAP and POP mail in quoting does to seem to exist any more, either. Unless someone objects, I'm inclined to mark this bug as a duplicate of Bug 15465 or Worksforme since the problem as dsecribed originally seems to be gone now.
