Summary0000714: Valid local part gets rejected when adding new mail address to account
DescriptionI tried to add a mail address with local part "=8-}" (without the '"') to my account. This failed. Adding a mail address with just letters as local part and the same domain name just worked. The problem is reproduceable.
Additional InformationThe local part "=8-}" consist only of characters allowed by RFC 2822. As far as I can suspect, the Mail address check is broken in such that it (a) doesn't confirm to RFC 2822 or (b) tries to decode the local part as quoted printable.
TagsNo tags attached.
