  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • For MIME emails in a user's mailfile with an attachment
    containing no data (size=0), the Traveler server may still
    attempt to read the attachment bytes. In this case, the API used
    to read the data will return the error code
    ERR_MIME_NO_DATA="No MIME data", which the server will log as an
    error even though it is expected in this case.
    
    With this fix, we prevent Traveler from unnecessarily trying to
    read attachment data if the size of the data in this MIME part
    is really 0. This will prevent the server from logging the above
    return code as an error when no data is expected.
    

Local fix

  • N/A
    

Problem summary

  • Error message logged for expected behavior, could be misleading
    to a system administrator.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The IBM Traveler server has been updated to handle this scenario
    correctly.
    

Temporary fix
