            Bug ID: 55981
           Summary: mod_mbox hang on some e-mails on user@openoffice.a.o -
                    see INFRA-7171
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.5-HEAD
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_mbox
          Assignee: bugs@httpd.apache.org
          Reporter: sebb@apache.org

See https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-7171 for full details.

A Message-ID is allowed to contain the character "&".
For example, MS Outlook 12.0 can generate ids of the form:

Message-ID: <!&!A...>

The ajax processor stores the id in the response without encoding the
ampersand.

For example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<mail id="%3c!&!A...%3e"> 

The XML processor then chokes on the "&!A" because it is not a valid entity
reference.

It should be sufficient to encode "&" as "&amp;"
