    From Accession@21:1/200 to All on Friday, January 19, 2024 22:25:12
    Hello All,

    Warpslide, now that you have everything working decent.. Try accessing your Jamnntpd server with the latest Thunderbird on Windows if you can, and let me know if you get the same issue I'm having, please. The from field above the message body in the top tile will either show numbers, or a jumbled mess.

    It seems like the Win32 version of Jamnntpd doesn't have this problem. I'm wondering if it's specific to Linux. I don't think I have the issue in any other NNTP client/reader *except* Thunderbird.

    Thanks in advance..

    Regards,
    Nick

    Here's what I see in Thunderbird:

    And how the same message looks in Claws:

    I tried sending this message in Thunderbird and it wouldn't send, nor
    would it connect with the NNTPS nginx proxy I have setup. Need to look
    into that a bit more.

    I have a feeling there's still something wrong with Jamnntpd being ran on 64bit Linux even if it was compiled on 32bit.

    Would you mind trying to run it where you compiled it (on the older version of 32bit Ubuntu) and see if that makes the From field display correctly in both Thunderbird and Claws mail?

    All good. But the original problem is still there. Everything seems to work fine, except the From field is messed up.

    Was it always like that for you? I had thought you had it working while using Claws Mail, but your last two messages showed otherwise. ;(

    Now the question is, is there any way you CAN get those from fields to display properly? Or did Jamnntpd permanently mess them up?

    I wonder if those same kind of antics are what's happening to the FROM field in the newsreader. It seems like letters are being taken out, new ones might be added, and for some reason sometimes it adds an extra "->" in there.

    It's just super wierd that everything else seems to work, EXCEPT the from field in the newsreader (even the headers and kludges seem fine).

    So with Smapinntpd, compiled and running on 64bit linux, I have no issues *except* with Thunderbird. Thunderbird still works, but it will have something like "212/192" in the from field or something similar, guessing based on the node number of the sender. Otherwise, I can read and write in Thunderbird fine. It has to be something specific to Thunderbird, but the difference in Jamnntpd vs Smapinntpd's code makes it difficult to pinpoint.

    post utf-8 UTF-8

    I also use this. Most newsreader clients are in UTF-8 by default, so that's what I go with. Since there is a translation table for cp437 to UTF-8 (located in the unicode subdirectory), my "read" line is cp437 (since most posts from BBSs use that, and without a CHRS kludge.. so best assumption is that the message is cp437 if there is no CHRS kludge), then I do all translations to UTF-8 (but not from).

    However, I doubt that has anything to do with the FROM field, since Carlos has mentioned that everything works as expected on Win32, and he was posting with UTF-8 also.

    Nick

    Uh oh. So Carlos shot me a netmail this morning with the Jamnntpd 1.2 patch with the correct locations to put it.

    Looks like I no longer have any issues with Smapinntpd and Thunderbird!

    Thanks Carlos!

    Most definitely:

    === BEGIN

    Edit nntpserv.c (smapinntpd)

    1. Insert this:

    {
    unsigned zone,net,node,point;
    if(sscanf(dispaddr,"%u:%u/%u.%u", &zone, &net, &node, &point)==4)
    sprintf(dispaddr,"%u@%u.%u.%u", point, node, net, zone);
    else if(sscanf(dispaddr,"%u:%u/%u", &zone, &net, &node)==3)
    sprintf(dispaddr,"0@%u.%u.%u", node, net, zone);
    }

    before this:

    mimesendheaderline(var,"From",dispname,chrs,dispaddr,cfg_noencode);

    2. Insert this:

    {
    unsigned zone,net,node,point;
    if(sscanf(dispaddr,"%u:%u/%u.%u", &zone, &net, &node, &point)==4)
    sprintf(dispaddr,"%u@%u.%u.%u", point, node, net, zone);
    else if(sscanf(dispaddr,"%u:%u/%u", &zone, &net, &node)==3)
    sprintf(dispaddr,"0@%u.%u.%u", node, net, zone);
    }

    before this:


    mimemakeheaderline(mimefrom,1000,"From",dispname,chrs,dispaddr,cfg_noencode);

    === END

    Also, comment out this line:

    // strcpy(mimefrom,&mimefrom[6]);

    ... and you should be good to go!
