Steps to reproduce: -copy a folder name from 4.6 with 8-bit chars in it to 5.0; -run Mail and see //note: folders name with 8-bit chars in it are showing 8-bit chars as dots (pop3 server,observed with 6/1/99 Win build)
Reassigning to email@example.com. Scott, is this supposed to work? Marina said it was working last week.
I don't think I touched anything regarding folder names any time recently. What do I need to be doing to make this work?
There are number of Latin1 8 bit related problem started yesterday so this may be one of them. You can reassign back to me. I have one question aside from the current problem. Is this supposed to work for non ascii (e.g. Japanese)?
Reassigning to nhotta based on his last comment. As far as I know I haven't touched this code. However, I haven't done anything to make this work or not work for Japanese so this could still all be my fault, if it was never working before.
I think this is a part of Latin1 8bit problems caused by nsString. Please verify for folder name with Latin1 8bits. In addition, please try Japanese folder name and report if any problem to firstname.lastname@example.org as a separate bug, thanks.
Folder's name that contains non-ascii chars are displaying correctly in 6/8/99 build, marking as verified.
Marina, does your test include Japanese folder names, too?
It doesn't look like Japanese folder names are supported currently in that they seem to be interpreted as Latin 1 or UTF-8. There is also a special problem with 0x5c JPN names in that folders containing such names do not show up at all.
Naoki, this is supposed to be system dependent. Right? So on US systems, we need to assume the system charset there in names but on JPN systems, we need to assume whatever the locale charset is, e.g. Shift_JIS (Mac/Win), EUC-JP or Shift_JIS (Unix lcoales).
I am not sure about the implementaion detail of this. As I mentioned before, I think it's better to create a separate bug for the problem you mentioned. We can input the i18n info to Scott Putterman to solve the problem.
I filed this bug originally for Latin-1, so i verified it for Latin-1. When i'll test on JA win and in case i'll see the problem i'll open a bug for JA.
Marking as FIXED.
Since I looked at Japanese folder names already. I'll file a new bug on that.
