it seems that our students found a bug in SCALIX:
If a SCALIX user has configured a forward to an external email address and receives an email that the sender has signed by S/MIME then SCALIX forwards an empty message!

Please handle this information as a bug report and provide a patch as soon as possible - our management and students of the study course "IT security" use this method of email communication more and more!!!

Thanks a lot and regards,

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for the bug report.

For the problem scenario that you describe does the forwarded email originate outside of the Scalix network, or is it generated internally?

Does this occur for every email with S/MIME content or only some?

Is it possible to trap one of the problem emails on a queue and export it (omqdump), or export a copy of an S/MIME message that got delivered (sxmboxexp) but didn't get auto-forwarded correctly.

Regards - Richard Hall

Hi Thomas,

Can you also supply the MIME source of the empty message that gets received by the user that receives the auto-fowarded copy.

Thanks - Richard
