Last updated on OCTOBER 12, 2011
Applies to:COREid Identity - Version: 10.1.4.2
Information in this document applies to any platform.
When the Identity Server product is configured to send an email on password change, the email that is sent contains a typo in the header.
The Content-Transfer-Encoding line is as follows:
"Content-Transfer-Encoding: : 8-bit" (note the double colons)
Instead, it should be this:
As a result of this error, spam gateway filters block the email messages, tagging them as Malformed Mime.
'Emails flow through MailMarshall for content filtering and email security. MailMarshall is blocking the message saying the MIME Content-Transfer-Encoding is invalid. Upon review of the SMTP transcript, the encoding type is "Content-Transfer-Encoding:: 8-bit" (note the double colons)."
-- Steps To Reproduce:
Have OIS send e-mail upon Password Reset.
