Ticket #2565 (new defect)

Opened 7 years ago

From address format

Reported by: gracinet Owned by: gracinet
Priority: P1 Milestone: CPS 3.5.6
Component: CPSUtil Version: unspecified
Severity: normal Keywords: mail send


The high-level mail sending utilities of CPSUtil.mail encode headers with the standard utilities from email.header. Some Mail User Agents (MUAs) don't understand the produced From header in case the full name is given and has non-ascci characters.

According to  this howto, the encoding should concern the full name part only, avoiding the email address itself (in pointy brackets).

In any case, the behavior of email.header is consistent accross python versions (checked 2.6, 2.7 and 3.1). Seen on CPSUtil-1.14.2-CPS-3.5, may have to fix from there.
