Mail 1.4 InternetHeaders behavior difference compared to Sun's
--------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: GERONIMO-2863
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-2863
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: specs
            Reporter: Daniel Kulp
            Priority: Minor



The InternetHeaders object's parsing is less "forgiving" of headers that don't meet specs
compared to Sun's.

Sun's implementation allows headers to be using "unix style" (just LF) and will parse them
fine.

The 1.4 version of Geronimo's only breaks on the CR and then blindly consumes the next char
(should be the LF).   If the stream only has LF's, everything is read into a single header.


I know the spec says the stream should be CR/LF so the behavior is fine for proper streams.
 However, it is a behavior change that COULD make it not a drop in replacement for Suns. 
(in our case, we had some test data that were "svn:eol_style: native" that passed on Windows,
but not on Unix.   Changing them to "svn:eol_style: CRLF" fixed it.)
