POP3 - From Field is empty when special chars are in the header


When the Pop3-Server is returning a Mail with a special char like é or è in the From-Field like “René Mustermann”, the MailMessage.From returns null.

I’m using Version 1.1. Outlook behaves correctly.

Thanks, Thomas

Hi Thomas,

I am sorry but I could not reproduce the issue at my end. Please find the attached program, I tried to first send an email with special characters in From and then received this email with Pop3Client. The message downloads successfully and MailMessage.From also returns valid value.

I checked this program with and a locally installed mail server, both worked fine with Aspose.Email for .NET 1.1, .NET framework 3.5, VS 2008 and Win7 x64.
