Subject [jira] Commented: (JAMES-376) encoding pop input as "ASCII" causes problems with passwords that are 8-bit
Date Tue, 03 Jan 2006 14:39:08 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-376?page=comments#action_12361627 ] 

Ralf Hauser commented on JAMES-376:

Probably, I was misleading with my reference to the RFC.

The problem already occurs now with the  private void doPASS(String command,String argument,String
 in https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/james/server/trunk/src/java/org/apache/james/pop3server/POP3Handler.java
or rather 
public boolean test(String name, String password) {
in https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/james/server/trunk/src/java/org/apache/james/userrepository/UsersFileRepository.java

or public boolean verifyPassword(String pass) { 
in https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/james/server/trunk/src/java/org/apache/james/userrepository/DefaultUser.java

> it appears that new Outlook allows for 8 bit instead of the ascii, so if a password containing
a "ΓΌ" or other Umlaut is used, there may be problems.
> org.apache.james.pop3server.POP3Handler.handleConnection(Socket connection) 
> determines the encoding.
> It doesn't appear that base64 or alike as in http://james.apache.org/rfclist/pop3/rfc1734.txt
is used.
