SMTP won't work under non-ASCII platforms

           Summary: SMTP won't work under non-ASCII platforms
           Product: Commons
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Blocker
          Priority: Other
         Component: Net
        AssignedTo: commons-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: fasselin@ca.ibm.com


The SMTP code doesn't work on EBCDIC platforms (like IBM os/390) because it 
sends the commands in the default platform encoding instead of forcing it to be 
ASCII.

I've tested it with an application running on OS/390 trying to do SMTP with a 
Domino server also running on OS/390 and it doesn't work because the server 
expects ASCII encoding even if it is running on an EBCDIC platform.

It is specified in the SMTP protocol that the commands/responses must be 
encoded in ASCII.

I've made it work locally by changing the calls to open the input/output 
streams in the com.oroinc.net.smtp.SMTP._connectAction_() method by using the 
respective constructors accepting an encoding as the second parameter and by 
specifying this encoding to be "Cp850".  The code changes still works on a 
Win2K platform.

I suspect there might be other platforms and/or other protocols that are 
affected.
