E0014: Ginet error with route addresses

Product: Gmail for UNIX 4.0.0, Ginet
Platform: Any
Status: Closed, fixed in 4.0.1 and 4.1.0
Last updated: 1996-07-01 11:12:03

Ginet did not correctly decode incoming messages where an address was specified as a 'route' address, returning a blank address (in the case where the route address was the From: address of the message) or by ignoring the address.

Route addresses, which are very rarely seen, are used to explicitly define which host an address should be processed by. One of the components of the address indicates the name of the Internet mail host that will process the message, thus bypassing the normal routing mechanism for Internet mail which uses Domain Name Servers.

For example, the route address "<@specialhost.gar.no:mats@gar.no>" explicitly defines the host "specialhost.gar.no" to be the host that receives messages for the recipient "mats@gar.no".
