APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Mobile devices often send mail to the server with the subject
    line broken into multiple parts. However, Windows 8 devices are
    known to sometimes split the subject up mid-byte, which is not
    allowed per RFC standards. The result is that the mail may be
    delivered to the recipient with an only partially-decoded
    subject line.
    
    The Traveler server has been updated to be able to handle this
    Windows 8 encoding mechanism.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

    around this issue with Windows 8 devices.
