Subject [jira] [Commented] (JAMES-1518) Allows non-ASCII characters in MIME mail headers
Date Sat, 10 Aug 2013 10:21:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-1518?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13735828#comment-13735828
] 

TzeKai Lee commented on JAMES-1518:
-----------------------------------

As far as I understand, RFC2047 describes how to encode non-ASCII charset using "only ASCII"
in the header, and RFCs actually require only ASCII appears in headers.

The proposed change is about how to dealing the case when there are non-ASCII appears in header
(RFCs disallow this case). So for properly encoded mail, the change does nothing to them.

> Currently any non-ASCII characters in MIME header contains byte > 127 will be converted
to '?' (ascii 63).
> Can we pass these kind characters as it is instead of converted to '?' ?
