I have the following message in my IMAP inbox. I can read it if I use Communicator 4.7, but if I use Mozilla 5.0 Mail, clicking on it does nothing except cause the message content area to stop repainting. On WinNt, if I bring a window in front of the content area, and then make the content window the front window again, it does not repaint, that is you can still see whatever used to be over it. Here's the message in my inbox: Return-Path: <email@example.com> Received: from hemail.mcom.com ([126.96.36.199]) by dredd.mcom.com (Netscape Messaging Server 4.1 Aug 9 1999 18:28:31) with ESMTP id FMNVVK00.MJ6 for <firstname.lastname@example.org>; Sun, 12 Dec 1999 20:16:32 -0800 Received: from ywing.netscape.com (ywing.mcom.com [188.8.131.52]) by hemail.mcom.com (8.8.8/8.8.5) with ESMTP id UAA23774 for <email@example.com>; Sun, 12 Dec 1999 20:16:30 -0800 (PST) Received: from wenet.net (rod.gstis.net [184.108.40.206]) by ywing.netscape.com (8.9.3/8.9.3) with ESMTP id UAA16645 for <firstname.lastname@example.org>; Sun, 12 Dec 1999 20:16:30 -0800 (PST) Received: from hooked.net (cvx01-551.sfo.wenet.net [220.127.116.11]) by wenet.net (8.9.3/8.9.3) with ESMTP id UAA07621; Sun, 12 Dec 1999 20:16:21 -0800 (PST) Message-ID: <385473AC.F3160A22@hooked.net> Date: Sun, 12 Dec 1999 20:18:53 -0800 From: KnAB <email@example.com> X-Mailer: Mozilla 4.61 [en] (Win95; I) X-Accept-Language: en MIME-Version: 1.0 To: Kin Blas <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Kin Camacho <email@example.com>, Dom Perez <firstname.lastname@example.org>, "jerome.perez" <email@example.com>, Joycie Cruz <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Julio Cruz <email@example.com>, "Joey Perez [Napulahi]" <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Ann Perez <email@example.com>, "April Miller [HotMail]" <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Barbara Sanchez <email@example.com>, Lelani Sanchez <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Jane Sanchez <email@example.com>, John and Steph San Nicolas <firstname.lastname@example.org>, John Park <email@example.com>, Ralph Blas <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Alan Kao <email@example.com>, "Crena Byerly [Old]" <CByerly@ortc.com>, Dylan Byerly <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Junior Topasna <email@example.com>, "Blas, Antoinette" <N1024@guam.navy.mil>, Lita Pitts <firstname.lastname@example.org>, "Michele C.D.

More info ... when I try to read the message, this appears in the console: XML Error in file 'imap://email@example.com:143/fetch>UID>/INBOX>42940', Lin e Number: 102, Col Number: 34, Description: not well-formed Source Line: , <html:a href="mailto:kdnj4"@firstname.lastname@example.org">Michele C.D.

Linkifier getting confused? Reassign to rhp, cc BenB
This is not my bug: The malformed line results from the headers being passed through my (recognition) code (i.e. the TO-header is linkyfied), which shouldn't be the case. Although this reveals, what seems to be a bug in my code :-).
Filed bug #21603 against myself and noticed, that at least my current code puts out that: ScanTXT orginal: "Michele C.D. Reyes" <"kdnj4"@firstname.lastname@example.org>, ScanTXT result: "Michele C.D. Reyes" <"kdnj4"<a href="mailto:@email@example.com">@firstname.lastname@example.org</a>>, Kin, which build do you use? If you're using a current one, it looks like the output wasn't produced by my code at all.
I'm using my 12/13/1999 SeaMonkey WinNt build. The bad address was from my wife's Communicator 4.61 address book. I'm not concerned about the problems we are having parsing the malformed address. I'm more concerned about the fact that I can't read that message because of an error in one of the receipient's address. I should be able to read the message no matter how mangled the other receipient's addresses are.
kin, I agree. I was just checking, if that bug is related to me. But the xml doesn't seem to root from my code.
