[REBOL] POP handler bug

From: gchiu::compkarori::co::nz at: 19-Sep-2002 23:32

I think this is a bug from Rebol year . :) Try this: msg: {.^/.^/} send [myself--where--com] msg and from Rebol mailbox: open pop://userid:[password--pop3--where--com] print last mailbox I get: .. .. back as the content. The POP3 server uses "." as a termination character, and so when it sees a single "." in the message, it byte-stuffs the termination character according to RFC1939. The current implementation neglects to remove the stuffed byte and so we see ".." rather than "." My email client correctly removes the extra "." -- Graham Chiu
