Category: mail delivery Group: 2.1 (stable) Status: Open Resolution: None Priority: 5 Submitted By: Philip Crotwell (crotwell) Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Summary: Bad Content-Disposition breaks senddigest
We are using the default mailman on mac osx server 10.3 which is mailman 2.1.2, so this may be old. But just in case, we got an email with attachement that caused mailman to croak in senddigest. Here is the output of running it by hand. I added 2 prints to see what the offending filename variable had in it. The Content-Disposition headers are below. Note that the two parts of the filename have been joined, but because of the bizarre endquoting in filename*0, there is an embedded \n\t.
We fixed this locally by editing the mbox to change the offending filename to be shorter and not split into two parts, but it might be nice if mailman would check for illegal characters embedded in filenames?
In addition to senddigest croaking, all emails after this bad one were not added to the archive. Luckily we had made a copy of digest.mbox before running senddigest manually and were able to manually add the lost emails to the archive mbox.
