#5679 closed defect (fixed)

From header encoded incorrectly

Reported by: Erik M. Bray Owned by: Robert Corsaro
Priority: normal Component: AnnouncerPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords: header encoding
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


According to RFC 5322 only the display name and the local part of the e-mail address in the From header can be quoted strings. But the announcer pluguin currently tries to encode the entire string of "display-name" <local@domain> which will break. You end up with everything up to the @ encoded, including the left angle bracket, which is incorrect.

The fix should look something like this:

  • announcerplugin/distributors/

    291291        del rootMessage['Content-Transfer-Encoding']
    292292        rootMessage.set_charset(self._charset)
    293293        rootMessage['Subject'] = Header(subject, self._charset)
    294         from_header = '"%s" <%s>'%(self.smtp_from_name or proj_name,
    295                 self.smtp_from)
     294        from_header = '"%s" <%s>' % \
     295                      (Header(self.smtp_from_name or proj_name, self._charset),
     296                       self.smtp_from)
    296297        rootMessage['From'] = from_header
    297298        if self.smtp_always_bcc:
    298299            rootMessage['Bcc'] = self.smtp_always_bcc
