Date Wed, 04 Feb 2015 07:28:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-1518?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14304739#comment-14304739

TzeKai Lee commented on JAMES-1518:

The problem is, current implementation also allows accept non-RFC headers.
It does not reject a mail contains a header with non-ASCII char but blindly and silently discard
8th bit.
What the patch provide is to leave a chance to mailet or any other backend part to handle
it, it does not change any SMTP behavior when act as server.

> Can we pass these kind characters as it is instead of converted to '?' ?
