Missing manditory <CR>?
We're running into some problems with siren mail when users try to
send to an ill-fromed address of the form <username>@xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Mark Crispin of UW (writer of pine's c-client) claims:
I found the problem. It's a bug in ZMailer's SMTP server.
The response message comes back as:
501-5.5.2 ^<LF>501 5.5.2 Path data: Should this be...
501-5.5.2 ^<CR><LF>501 5.5.2 Path data: Should this be...
Since the mandatory CR is missing, my code sees it all as one line, and
it's waiting for a non-continuation line which never comes.
Thanks for telling me the identity of the SMTP server. I used it as
part of my testing. I suspected that this was the problem, but the
test confirmed it.
We're running zmailer 2.99.38 on an IBM SP2 running AIX 4.1
