E0148: Ginet problem on certain recipient addresses

Product: Gmail for Unix 4.0.0, Ginet
Platform: Unix
Status: Closed, fixed in 4.0.1 and 4.1.0, patch available
Last updated: 1996-10-07 13:35:03

ginet failed when the Internet address of a recipient contained the "'"
character (single quotation mark).

For example, when sending a message to


The resulting command line was

   /usr/lib/sendmail -oi -oem '-fmats@gar.no' 'ed.o\'hare@somewhere.org'

which fails due to interpretation of quoted command lines on Unix, while
the corrected version of ginets generated this command line:

   /usr/lib/sendmail -oi -oem "-fmats@gar.no" "ed.o'hare@somewhere.org"
