00939: Issue with Notify.php
When using the
$NotifyFrom in the Notify function the mail is not properly formed because an extra "BlankLine" is written in the header.
On Debian/Apache2/PHP4/Postfix this could be fixed by removing
\r in from
With this the mail is correctly created
$NotifyHeaders = "From:
I think it's the same whatever version of Linux/PHP/mailserver. Maybe the
\r is needed with windows.
Can someone check on windows so the code could be corrected ?
I can confirm this. On a Debian/Apache I need the bug-fix mentioned above. On my other webspace with Linux/Apache the original notify.php from PmWiki works. It would be helpful to correct this in one of the next versions. By the way, the bug-fix works on both servers.

PmWiki uses the \r\n (CRLF) between headers because the current standard is defined this way, see RFC 5322 (Header fields are lines beginning with a field name, followed by a colon (":"), followed by a field body, and terminated by CRLF.) The current workaround is to not set a
$NotifyFrom value, but to set From: directly in
$NotifyHeaders = "From: email@example.com\nOtherField: Other Field Body";
I'm not sure that PmWiki should move out of the standard -- this may possibly break existing and future e-mail servers and clients. Admins who require the change can apply the workaround. --Petko January 13, 2010, at 07:27 PM
