Subject [jira] Updated: (MIME4J-181) AddressListParser should allow non ASCII characters in the name part of addresses
Date Wed, 10 Nov 2010 10:29:14 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MIME4J-181?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Oleg Kalnichevski updated MIME4J-181:

    Issue Type: Improvement  (was: Bug)

I personally do not think it is a bug, thought, I also would like the AddressListParser to
be more lenient about non-ASCII characters in the display-name. Unfortunately it appears that
the fix for the issue may require a fair number of declarations in the jjtree file to be duplicated
(one for ASCII-only constructs and another one for those where non-ASCII characters are permitted)

Admittedly I know next to nothing about JJTREE, so, ideally someone with a better understanding
of jjtree should take a look.

> Seems quite common that user agents don't encode From: and Sender: fields properly. This
means that they contain non ASCII characters. E.g. "From: Håkan Öster <hakan@example.net>".
It would be nice if Mime4j could handle these addresses without a parse error at least in
non strict mode. Right now AddressListParser fails with a ParseException because it only allows
ASCII characters.
