Subject [jira] Commented: (JAMES-376) encoding pop input as "ASCII" causes problems with passwords that are 8-bit
Date Tue, 03 Jan 2006 15:27:01 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-376?page=comments#action_12361638 ] 

Stefano Bagnara commented on JAMES-376:

the POP3 connection is not UTF8: you should save the password in db as the same byte sequence
that you expect in the pop3 connection.

> 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.
