#298 IMAP notes 5 days ago

Comment by ~jon on ~sircmpwn/aerc2

This further suggests that yes, they are just using the Apple Notes-in-IMAP encoding convention https://fastmail.blog/2015/12/24/note-to-self-imap-notes-are-go/

If you mean this → https://www.fastmail.com/help/clients/macmail-manual.html

Then this is just a convention for encoding Mac OS X or iOS notes into IMAP folders. I use this myself, and I can read my Notes in aerc fine, they're just normal mails inside the Notes folder.

I've hit this a couple more times now so I'll re-open, although I can't clean room reproduce. I suspect that there are some events taking place behind the scenes (perhaps IMAP stuff?) that impacts which tab is returned to.

#304 fail to send composed mail due to recpt address "mail expected comma" 5 days ago

Ticket created by ~jon on ~sircmpwn/aerc2

Composing a reply to an email with the following From

From Computing.PhD@ncl.ac.uk Computing.PhD@newcastle.ac.uk

The address there was copied into the To field in the composer, but when trying to send, the bottom status bar displays the following in red

PrepareHeader: ParseAddressList(Computing.PhD@ncl.ac.uk Computing.PhD@newcastle.ac.uk): mail: expected comma

I can't reproduce it. Can you show the exact steps you do?

You know what, neither can I this morning. I'll close for now and if I hit this again investigate further.

#300 smtp:// attempts to connect to submission (:587) only, not :25 7 days ago

Comment by ~jon on ~sircmpwn/aerc2

Whoa, easy there...

Sorry. I overreacted.

How many people with a local MTA set up submission (or TLS etc) I wouldn't know. No one can tell.

We could make some educated guesses on some things via sources like Debian popcon, I suppose.

Put another way: why would someone run a local MTA? Most distributions default to not installing one any more. The reason I do is to polyfill over bad UI issues in MUAs, mainly mutt (but it's also useful for aerc, at the moment - e.g. it reduces the impact of #266 or #183)

The point I wanted to make is that the default port of 587 isn't surprising and aerc probably doesn't need a fallback to 25 as I expect most providers to use the default port. It should probably be documented though as you said, nothing wrong there.

For an external SMTP host, you're right, 587 is the sensible choice. And it's also probably not worth either having a fallback attempt to 25, or logic to treat localhost differently. So it's just a docs matter, I agree. And I'll try to work on a patch.

Comment by ~jon on ~sircmpwn/aerc2

I'm not sure that there is a provider who accepts on port 25 at this age

Did you read the ticket? The MTA is on localhost. How many people with a local MTA set up submission (or TLS etc)?

Rather than opening the ticket, why don't you send a patch implementing the documentation changes?

Submitting the issue does not proclude me submitting a patch. But perhaps someone else will beat me to it. Thanks for dissuading me from contributing to aerc, though.
