Subject: Re: mail delivery errors - message ID header not RFC 5322 conform

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

A closer look in my sended mail headers shows always two ">>" at the
end of the message IDs, e.g. "Message-ID:
<2024...5F12@dd52404....com>>", which seems to be not RFC 5322

I'm having some trouble reproducing this ... would it be possible for you to post the full headers, redacted of any privacy information if necessary?
Also please let us know how these messages are being entered into the system - from the web client, the text client, an IMAP/SMTP agent, mailing list post, etc.

If we can reproduce the problem this is definitely something we will need to correct immediately.

Thanks for answering.

This problem occured after bringing up the citadel version 998 on a new raspi 4 using the build script for the "easy install instructions". Previously it worked well on the older used citadel versions i used before via debian package sources. So i cannot tell you beginning on which version number this problem has started.

For mail clients i use Mozilla Thunderbird 115.7.0 on debian and K9-Mail 6.801 on Adroid, via SMTP Port 587 STARTTLS and normal password as authentication method. It is the same, always ">>" two brackets are developed on the end of the "Message-ID" line, whatever mail client i use. When i loop back to check the headers i use IMAP 993 SSL/TLS, the outgoing headers show the same data as the incoming, ">>" at the end of the "Message-ID" line.

Here is one of the example headers:
Test
Subject:
Test
From:
"stefan my_domainname" <stefan@my_domainname.link>
Date:
11.04.24, 08:52
To:
stefan@my_domainname.link
Return-Path:
stefan@my_domainname.link
Message-ID:
<f1b1b8d5-a179-4622-9949-8708cee301db@my_domainname.link>>
Received:
from [private_IP_adress] (user.domain.at [public_IP_adress]) by my_domainname.link; Thu, 11 Apr 2024 08:52:26 +0200
MIME-Version:
1.0
User-Agent:
Mozilla Thunderbird
Content-Language:
en-US
Content-Type:
text/plain; charset=UTF-8; format=flowed
Content-Transfer-Encoding:
7bit

Here you can see the double brackets >> at the end of the Message-ID.

I also took a short look in the dircetly downloaded source code package and it is only a weak quick theory... Is this "Message-ID" line created in "msgbase.c"?
If you look in the lines 2021-2027:

    if (mode == MT_RFC822) {
        // Construct a fun message id
        cprintf("Message-ID: <%s", mid);
        if (strchr(mid, '@')==NULL) {
            cprintf("@%s", snode);
        }
        cprintf(">%s", nl);
       
Possibly the string "mid" containes already a ">" at the end at this position. Then the last line could perhaps simply be modified to
    cprintf("%s", nl); ???

Thanks for help.

Now i had the opportunity to test it at home using the local browser based version of citadel support. I have composed a short message via browser and this works fine:

"You are connected to Citadel Server
  Running: Citadel Server 998 with WebCit #define CLIENT_VERSION 998 /* This version of WebCit */
  Server Build: 998"

Here the problem does NOT occur. The Message-ID header line is closed with one bracket - extracted statement from the output mail header, prompted and saved via thunderbird:

Message-ID:
<66181D91-0000030A@mydomain.link>

So it can be circumscribed: The problem occurs using mail clients like Thunderbird or K-9 Mail for writing and sending emails via SMTP.

Thanks

Hello all, this is my first time trying out this weird style of BBS.  I'm used to forum style from a decade or two ago, so I'm pretty confused on how to navigate this place.  Is there documentation on how things are grouped together?  Right now it seems to be rooms each with a couple forum posts that stretch on for ages and switch topics midway through.

No one is perfect. We all tend to stray OT in a room.

Each room has a topic, and the conversation in each room is linear. Instead of keeping track of threads, you just follow along like a regular conversation.
The next time you return to a room, it will remember where you were last time so you can catch up.

So it's simpler than you might have expected. People who are accustomed to it really love it.

You are absolutely correct, and I am now able to reproduce the problem. When an external SMTP agent submits a message with the message ID in angle brackets, the bracket on the right is not properly stripped.

What an excellent troubleshoot and bug report. We'll get this fixed right away.
