Subject [jira] [Commented] (MIME4J-239) AddressBuilder#parseMailbox fails when the local part contains a '@'
Date Sat, 14 Jun 2014 20:33:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MIME4J-239?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14031690#comment-14031690

Nitsan Seniak commented on MIME4J-239:

"I understand why this might not be a bug" => what I meant is that Stefano's explanation
made me understand this is not a bug. I did not intentionally enter this as a bug knowing
it isn't one.

Although it's not a bug it still seems to be a problem because apparently there are emails
with such addresses circulating around, and my system is probably not the only one receiving

Is there a workaround, like a way to catch malformed addresses in mime headers and handle
them with custom code?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

> assertThat(add.getLocalPart(), is("joe@my company"));
