Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-4252) NNTP Transport provider does not correctly store message identifiers
Date Fri, 15 Aug 2008 12:13:44 GMT
NNTP Transport provider does not correctly store message identifiers

                 Key: GERONIMO-4252
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: mail
            Reporter: David Graff
            Priority: Minor

While working with a client program I used the 1.6-SNAPSHOT (built locally) and noticed a
problem where the message ID was not correctly identified to the NNTP server I was communicating

When recieved in the message processor, the < and > are stripped off and the "meat"
of the id are stored.  When performing a "STAT" call, the < and > are not restored resulting
in a news server error.

Referencing the NTTP RFC 3977 ( Section 3.6 it states the
following regarding message IDs
   Each article MUST have a unique message-id; two articles offered by
   an NNTP server MUST NOT have the same message-id.  For the purposes
   of this specification, message-ids are opaque strings that MUST meet
   the following requirements:

   o  A message-id MUST begin with "<", end with ">", and MUST NOT
      contain the latter except at the end.

   o  A message-id MUST be between 3 and 250 octets in length.

   o  A message-id MUST NOT contain octets other than printable US-ASCII

As this states, the < and > are required.  There are  two ways this can be accomplished,
1, store the message ID with the < and > in NNTPGroupFolder or change all calls using
the message ID to encapsulate with < and >.
