Known Errors

These are the known errors in our products, logged as reported with versions and platforms affected as well as corrections and work-arounds.

This list is largely historical, since it records all problems that have been reported throughout G&R history. Only the most recently reported problems still exist, unless you are using a very old copy of the product, in which case you should update the product to the most recent version.

E0164: Ginet was not using the envelope From address correctly

Product: Ginet 4.0.1 and earlier
Platform: Unix
Status: Closed, fixed in 4.0.2 and 4.1.0
Last updated: 1996-11-11 15:46:57

Two related problems with Internet error reports have been corrected:

1) Negative reports and/or acknowledgements were not returned to the
correct address. The report was sent to the From: address in the Internet
message's header, while it should have been sent to the Internet message
envelope From address. These two From addresses are usually identical.
However, error reports of any kind should go to the envelope From address
while Replies etc. should go to the header From address.

In addition, the Return-Path: and envelope From: address for the report
was set to a valid recipient, while it should have been set to a Null
address. A Null address as the envelope From is the Internet mail
mechanism to prevent reports-on-reports.

2) Ginetr decoded Null address specifications in the Return-Path: header
field incorrectly.
