Notification mail with doubled newline

posts: 1 Germany

Hello, every newline in the original Forumpost is mailed as a doubled newline. Which extends the text lentgth enourmous. Is it my fault or is it a windows bug or is it a tiki bug(I'm Using TikiWiki 1.9.1 but I runs and I dont want to change this until 1.10 if it is not sure that a update will fix this little bug. Because I did some tweaks during the Login and a I'm using AulaWiki.
I thought it might be something with this \r\n thing. But I don't know.

Please give me a short post/hint if this is a known (and fixed) bug or if you know which lib should be hacked.

Hi Wulle!

From memory, there is the same bug with newsletters and with wiki page change notifications.

The bug appears in some mail clients (ex.: IMP webmail and gmail) but not others (Thunderbird). I am using Linux servers.

I have a temporary fix in notificationemaillib.php

< $smarty->assign_by_ref('mail_pagedata', $edit_data);


> $smarty->assign_by_ref('mail_pagedata', str_replace "\r\n", "\n", $edit_data));


I didn't commit because I am prety sure it is not a good way to solve this problem.

There is a "Mail end of line:" setting in tiki-admin.php?page=general which is supposed to help here but it hasn't worked for me.

I have noticed the same problems with text emails sent by phplist, therefore I think it is a bug in the email transfer class:

Maybe we should upgrade to the latest version?
