Like wise if you copy-paste foreign undisplayable characters from korean, chinese, etc. spam mail and paste it into a rule and then try to Run Now the rule. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a new mail filter rule. 2. Add the english pound or euro currency symbols to Subject contains line. 3. Save the rule 4. Select it and click Run Now. Actual Results: Fails to operate with a dialog message. Expected Results: That messages with those symbols (or byte combinations) are filters.
This looks rather like bug 152888. Not sure if it should be counted as a dupe though.
Apon reading 152888, it sounds very much like my own case. To add to 152888 comment #4, I copy/pasted the characters (bytes) as seen from my english viewing persepective. As for the english pound and euro symbol, I can type them from the keyboard, yet the filter fails when I run it.
If every email message (even spam mails) is compliant to RfC 2047, it'd be relatively easy to fix this, but most spam mails use 'raw' octets with MSB set (violating RFC 2047) in the mail header(Subject, From, etc), which makes it more difficult than otherwise to fix this and bug 152888
I should have marked this as dupe of bug 152888. Reading it convinced me that it's a dupe. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 152888 ***
