Subject [jira] Commented: (JAMES-576) Mails with Duplicate Mail Address in To / CC
Date Mon, 24 Jul 2006 13:16:14 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-576?page=comments#action_12423069 ] 
Noel J. Bergman commented on JAMES-576:

The correct behavior is not defined by MIME specs.

Server behavior would be defined by RFC 2821, with the behavior controlled by the RCPT command.
 RFC 2821 refers to accumulating a buffer of addresses, but does not say anything about merging
(or not) duplicates.  Some mail servers provide the ability to "ignore" duplicate RCPT addresses.

>                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-576
>             Project: James
>          Issue Type: Test
>          Components: SMTPServer
>    Affects Versions: 2.2.0
>         Environment: Windows XP Professional
> James 2.2.0
> JDK 1.4.2_08
>            Reporter: Govind Kumar
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 2.2.0
> In case a mail's TO and / or CC address contains duplicates of same mail ids like 
> To  : test1@testdomain,test1@testdomain
> CC : test1@testdomain
> , James sends multiple copies of the same mail to the same addresse. (In this case test1@testdomain
receives 3 copies)
> Does this represent the correct behaviour as per the MIME specs (RFC 2045, RFC 2046,
and RFC 2047) ? OR should the smtp server send only 1 mail to 'test1@testdomain'. On referring
other mail servers(with their mail Clients), this is not the case ? If duplicate mails are
not to be send, is this the responsibility of a mail client or the mail server ?
