#6895 closed defect (wontfix)

Emails fail to be sent if mime-encoding set to None

Reported by: Hugh Gibson Owned by: Robert Corsaro
Priority: normal Component: AnnouncerPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


I wasn't getting any notifications through no matter what I changed.

I had announcer mime_encoding set to None (inherited from the default Notification setting).

I got a crash in at line 289:

287 if not self._charset.body_encoding: 288 try: 289 dummy = body.encode('ascii') 290 except UnicodeDecodeError: 291 raise TracError(_("Ticket contains non-ASCII chars. " \ 292 "Please change encoding setting"))

When I changed to:

mime_encoding = qp

emails started arriving.

Looks like the code there is a hangover from previous options and hasn't been updated.

Was getting the same error, and changing mime_encoding from "none" to "qp" removed the error and messages were sent.

Ditto. Having the same problem, "qp" fixed it.

This is odd, because I've been fighting with the plugin all morning, and I couldn't get it to send out anything besides corrupted mails and random garbage UNLESS I set mime_encoding to none (which also happens to match the default in [notification]). If base64, I got a line of garbage from the thing, if quoted-printable I got a full mail but the MIME boundaries themselves were encoded, leading the mail clients (Outlook and Thunderbird) to display the raw content of the whole message. Only with "none" did it work.

I'm trying to work with the latest trunk on Trac 0.11 (because 0.11 and 0.11dev branches are not working for me).

yowzer. I'll look at this soon.

I just realized that I was using "quoted-printable" instead of "qp" as the value. But I'm not sure how it got into my Trac; something seemed to have wrote that value, but is that even possible? I don't know how it got there, I just tried none because "about trac" said that's how it was set in [notification] so I tried to mirror that.

I was looking at the source code and I saw the Option said "qp" was the valid value. I see also there were "doc strings" describing the options. Is there a way to get a list of the options and that documentation? I didn't see one. I thought about compiling a list on the wiki but there are a lot of options, and it took me forever to just "figure out" what they are.
