Subject Found Problem with Retries and Bounces
Date Tue, 05 Mar 2002 19:14:46 GMT
OK I have found the basic cause of the message header information being lost
during retries of temporary failures.  Basically the MimeMessageWrapper
doesn't fully load the data file until it is actually needed, it stores a
reference to a MimeMessageSource instead.  When RemoteDelivery updates the
message status and retry count, it attempts to store() the updated message.

What happens is that store() creates a new FileOutputStream, which truncates
the file to 0 bytes, then tells the message object to write itself to the
new file.  MimeMessageWrapper realises that it needs to read the header data
from it's MimeMessageSource and tries to do so, but this file has just been
wiped.  Therefore the data has been lost.
