8bit chars in header stop display of msg
Similar to the recent View Source problem: If an 8bit char (e.g. "ü") appears in the header, nothing is displayed from there on, i.e. the body isn't rendered. I'll attach a test msg.
To make clear: This bug appears for normal display. Yes, I know, 8bit chars shouldn't appear in the header (I already contacted the responsible person for the generator), but we shouldn't fall over them either :).
Also, I don't see the old header section anymore, but the normal headers look like the ones in forwarded msgs now.
Looks like the header broadcaster/listeners are having problem with 8 bit data...hmm...weird. Any ideas Scott? - rhp

Rich, did you actually make sure the broadcaster was getting called with a character with 8-bit data (i.e. that the failure didn't happen earlier?). The broadcaster I wrote uses unicode strings which are multibyte strings so in theory they don't care if it's an 8-bit character.... Ben, you are using imap right? We did have a bug a while ago where 8 bit data in the headers was throwing the imap parser out of whack. This could be related?
mscott, View Source works correctly. The problem equally appears, if the folder resides in Local Folders.
ahh thanks for the extra info ben. so it must be in mime then.
Don't worry Scott. I'll debug it when I am doing debugging work...but now, I'm just pushing these out to work on features. Just wondered if anything rang a bell. - rhp
In Netscape 6 Beta1 (which still has the separate header section), only the subject is truncated (from the 8bit char on), but the rest of the msg displays fine.
This seems to render fine for me. View source as well. - rhp
