lately I've received a number of mails with german umlaut-characters in
the From-Header. Apparently, balsa can't handle these characters, so
when I reply to these mails, I have to manually insert the To-Adress.
Here are the relevant header lines as seen in the message source:
Return-Path: <boehne vermessung-XXX de>
X-Status: Mime-Version: 1.0 (Apple Message framework v624)
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed
Message-Id: <d99bcbb4f10abcdd22451a736c805ca7 vermessung-XXX de>
<boehne vermessung-XXX de>
This is the From-Header as seen when the mail is displayed:
When I reply to such mails, this is what is put into the To-HEader:
Of course, as the actual mail address in the From-Header is cut off,
balsa doesn't know what to do with it. I guess "Return-Path" is a non-
standard header (?) and they should use "Reply-To" instead. However, as
I don't control the other party's mail server, I have to live with what
I've got and it would be great if balsa could just fall back on using
"Return-Path". Any chance to get that implemented? :-)
BTW, I use the balsa version currently available in the repositories of
Debian/Sid, which is 2.3.25-1.
