OpenVMS VMS73_MAIL-V0100 ALPHA V7.3 Mail ECO Summary
TITLE: OpenVMS VMS73_MAIL-V0100 ALPHA V7.3 Mail ECO Summary

New Kit Date     :  25-JUL-2001
Modification Date:  Not Applicable
Modification Type:  New Kit

NOTE:  An OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file is stored
       on the Internet in a self-expanding compressed file.
       For OpenVMS savesets, the name of the compressed saveset
       file will be kit_name.a-dcx_vaxexe for OpenVMS VAX or
       kit_name.a-dcx_axpexe for OpenVMS Alpha. Once the OpenVMS
       saveset is copied to your system, expand the compressed
       saveset by typing RUN kitname.dcx_vaxexe or kitname.dcx_alpexe.
       For PCSI files, once the PCSI file is copied to your system,
       rename the PCSI file to kitname.pcsi-dcx_axpexe, then it can
       be expanded by typing RUN kitname.pcsi-dcx_axpexe.  The resultant
       file will be the PCSI installation file which can be used to install
       the ECO.

An ECO kit exists for MAIL on OpenVMS Alpha V7.3.  This 
kit addresses the following problems: 


  o  Sending message from VMSMAIL to Exchange, using TCPIP,  merges
     the  TO:   and  CC:   lines into one TO:  line in the received
     message.  See example below:

         MAIL> Send/CC
         To: SMTP%"A.B@C.COM"
         CC: SMTP%"D.E@F.COM"

     The TO: line in Exchange:
         TO: A.B@C.COM,D.E@F.COM

         Images Affected: [SYSEXE]MAIL.EXE

  o  VMS  Mail  does  not  filter  out  the    character  when
     displaying  certain  types  of information.  A user could send
     any type of VT Escape Sequences to another user's terminal and
     change the receiving terminal's behavior.

         Images Affected:  [SYSEXE]MAIL.EXE

  o  A %MAIL-E-ALTPRIJOB error displays without cause.  See example

         $ MAIL

           MAIL> 22
                 (Message #22 is displayed)

           MAIL> print

           MAIL>  5
                  (Message #5 is displayed)

           MAIL> print/queue=32$lb2a
           %MAIL-E-ALTPRIJOB, error altering parameters of 
           job 505 queue 32$LB2A
           Job MAIL (queue 34$LB4L, entry 505) started on 34$LB4L

           MAIL> exit

     The print job is eventually released to the printer,  but  the
     user is not notified.

         Images Affected:  [SYSEXE]MAIL.EXE


No reboot is necessary after successful installation of the kit.
