Date Tue, 15 May 2007 01:05:16 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MIME4J-11?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Stefano Bagnara resolved MIME4J-11.

    Resolution: Fixed

As an improvement it would be cool to have brand new test messages created from scratch to
test corner cases of parsing, but the bug as been fixed removing copyrighted files.

> In src/test/resources/testmsgs we have files with unknown copyright.
> I guess they are test files from the Perl MIME-tools library written by
> ZeeGee software (http://www.zeegee.com/products/MIME-tools/).
> I also verified that every msg file (the original encoded messages are
> only the msg files, the others are expanded/elaborated data/expected
> results generated from that messages) is in the following file:
> MIME-tools-6.200_02.tar.gz
> I found that file here: http://search.cpan.org/~eryq/MIME-tools-6.200_02/

> The best solution would be to create a new test suite based on artificially generated
data (or public corpus, as Norman suggested: http://spamassassin.apache.org/publiccorpus/)
