I save my outgoing mail in the local folder "Sent". It is saved with Windows line breaks, i.e. CRLF instead of just LF, which makes it annoying to read in other Unix apps (even if mozilla itself doesn't care). Probably, some code somewhere should be using NS_LINEBREAK to get the right line breaks for each platform.
Minor UI fixups to M18. If this is incorrect, please adjust.
This is reall a hassle to deal with when using other Linux apps to view/edit/copy from these folders, and the longer it goes on, the more bad folders are going to be out there. Besides, it should be a one-line change (just change a "\r\n" to NS_LINEBREAK wherever it's doing the writing). Adding nsbeta3 keyword, though really I think we ought to think about it for nsbeta2.
Rich, any ideas?
If you are talking about the applications Sent folder (i.e. the Berkeley mail folder) these should be saved with CRLF line endings per the standards for RFC822 messages. This is not a platform specific issue. Now, if we save files to disk from the File-> Save menu and they are not platform specific, that would be the bug. - rhp
RFC822 does specify CRLF as a separator for things like message headers, but it doesn't say that this applies to saving local files, and it also includes the proviso: 3.4.10. NETWORK-SPECIFIC TRANSFORMATIONS During transmission through heterogeneous networks, it may be necessary to force data to conform to a network's local con- ventions. For example, it may be required that a CR be fol- lowed either by LF, making a CRLF, or by <null>, if the CR is to stand alone). Such transformations are reversed, when the message exits that network. which seems to indicate fairly explicitly that it is not intended to conflict with machine or local network linebreak standards. In any case, our folders should be compatible with other mailers, editors and other software on the platform, which means it should use platform line breaks, just like we always did in previous versions of netscape. Otherwise it seems like we're trying to lock people into using our mailer by making our output format nonstandard.
4.x stores local mailbox files using platform-specific linebreaks. Compatibility with other mail clients would be harmed on Mac if we were to do otherwise.
+ per mail triage
second pass: - per mail triage
removing mail2 keyword.
reassigning jefft's bugs to naving
moving to future milestone.
sorry for the spam. making bugzilla reflect reality as I'm not working on these bugs. filter on FOOBARCHEESE to remove these in bulk.
