Import in text format (txt,csv,tab): Should support non-ascii display names and email addresses
This is spun off bug 91295 as the code currently only works for ascii display names and email addresses. Some notes from 91592: a) how does your code handle non-ASCII display names? b) will this code work with IDNs in email addresses? (does eudora support that?) see http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=127399.
QA contact to myself. Nominating for nsbeta1 since this used to be working.
Discussed in mail news bug meeting. Decided to minus this bug.
cavin, is this a bug for Eudora import?
No, I think this is a problem for all import.
okay, non ASCII e-mail address is not legal at this point I think no commercial mailer support it, so we can focus on the non ASCII dispaly name problem.
QA contact to Marina. Please reassgin to appropriate person.

I received e-mail with the source from line: From: =?8859_1?B?S2FybGr8cmdlbg==?= Xxxxxxxxx <email@example.com> and Mozilla renders that first name as a Chinese character, 翽, which is U+7FFD meaning "sounds of wings flapping". Well, the arguably input is garbage (it's nothing like the guy's real name, and I usually get an accurate display of it although it includes a u with umlaut) so I should expect to see garbage, but certainly the input seems to be intended as an ISO 8859-1 string which cannot include Chinese characters. I am using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624.
should Bug 163501 dup to or depend on this bug?

Mark and others, a) is this really an import issue? or is it garden variety AB? b) with no dupes or votes it's hard to imagine there aren't other bugs that haven't fixed or dupe parts of this bug. Might some be bug 164121 bug 129407 bug 207998 And after those, what's not listed that's left to implement? for the record, the spinoff reference in comment 0 is to end of bug 91295 comment 10.

(In reply to comment #12) > a) is this really an import issue? or is it garden variety AB? Not sure, I can't say I've really tried it, but given the lack of comments/other bugs about it, I'd be surprised if its a big problem still. > b) with no dupes or votes it's hard to imagine there aren't other bugs that > haven't fixed or dupe parts of this bug. Might some be > bug 164121 > bug 129407 > bug 207998 > And after those, what's not listed that's left to implement? There's one somewhere about allowing different character sets for import, that's probably the more relevant one in this case. So we could probably close this one now.
The e-mail mentioned in comment 10 now, in Thunderbird 126.96.36.199, displays with a Unicode unknown character symbol, a question mark in a diamond, rather than the Chinese character. As the input is garbage, that is probably correct behaviour, so at least this part of the bug seems to have been fixed.
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20100411 Icedove/3.0.4 The message from #10 still unreadable, despite my iconv knows that "8859_1" is valid codeset, and "S2FybGr8cmdlbg==" is decoded properly to "Karljürgen".
Summary: Import: Should support non-ascii display names and email addresses → Import in text format (txt,csv,tab): Should support non-ascii display names and email addresses
This patch can not be applied without the fix for bug 703175 since both of patches touch nsTextAddress::DetermineDelim. This patch uses MsgDetectCharsetFromFile which is introduced in bug 703503.
