APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • 1.  Send a message to a Notes user from gmail which includes 2
    or more
    atttachments with the same name (but different content in
    each)
    2.  Domino SMTP service will receive the MIME message and as
    part of creating
    the Notes mail document will create a $File object for every
    visible
    attachment.  It is creating entries with
    <filename>.<extension>.001 for ones
    with duplicate names.  This is problemeatic as the last segment
    is not the
    extension, and hence various things within the mail client may
    exhibit
    problems.  (For example, the Notes cllient can't figure which
    image to display
    for this attachment)
    
    Customer request:  Change the format of the filename generated
    for such
    duplicates to be <filename>.001.<extension>.  In other words
    flip the unique
    number segment and the extension portion of the file.
    
    Not having the right etension will have lots of problems
    including:
    Not being able to launch the proper document editor
    Not displaying the right icon representing the file type

Comments

  • This APAR is associated with SPR# VSEN8UCNFG.
    when we receive an internet message which contains multiple
     files of the same name, we must create a unique 'internal'
     name when we store the message into the router's mail
     box.    unfortunately, we formed the unique name by appending
     a sequence number (e.g., 005) which had the effect of 'losing'
     the original file extension; the extension is used on some
     platforms to identify the file type and thus launch the
     correct application for the file.    this change fixes that
     problem so that the unique name is formed by taking the base
     name (i.e., the 'file' part of 'file.ext'), appending the
     sequence number and then appending the original extension.
     for example, file.0005.ext.    this insures that if the user
     is somehow presented with unique internal name rather than the
     original name, the user will still be able to launch the
     approrpriate application for the file.
