New Product Features and Changes

FirstClass Internet Services 12 Build 11.165

Filter out XSS attack vectors from the dAltBody HTML stream before sending it to the server.
Adjust level 3 logging so that when sending responses that fail are marked as such.
Changed the Stream closed log message to Stream closed by other end, to make it clear(er) who's at fault.
IMAP: Do async reporting in the NOOP command handler.
Handle ATOM dates in RSS 2.0 feeds.
Fixed Symantec scan engine error by not trying to send zero length chunks of data to be scanned.
Fixed crash processing Alt Body HTML.
Buffer data sent to the Symantec scan engine for better performance.
Fixed broken access to personal web pages via alias.
Fixed retrieval of encrypted S/MIME messages that haven't been decrypted on the way in.
Limit the amount of original message body (used for crash diagnostics) to 100MB, to avoid bogging the machine down.
Fixed SMTP crash.
Updated calendar invitation handling to better inter-operate with other calendaring systems, such as Google and Exchange.
Ignore mailto: in RCPT TO: addresses, as issued by Exchange.
The XSS sanitizer doesn't strip url() references to image files (.jpg, .jpeg, .gif and .png).
Replace newlines with spaces in the Location field to improve legibility.
When attaching a calendar event (instead of turning the message into the event), set the start date, duration, etc. (but not attendees).
The XSS sanitizing is now more surgical in what it removes.
XSS sanitizing can now be disabled/enabled in one of two ways. The first is via

SET_DisableXSSSanitizing = 1
The default value is 0.

The other way is via a new mail rules built in variable $DisableXSSSanitizing, which is read/write and can be set to 0 (zero) to enable sanitizing or 1 (one) to disable sanitizing.
FTP, HTTP, LDAP, POP3 and IMAP4 now support blacklisting IP addresses when they strike out due to too many bad logging attempts.
Bad password strike outs (including SMTP) are now controlled by the Abuse note level setting in Basic Internet Setup : UCE/Spam : Abuse.
Added a feature in the AddHandler document to return custom HTTP headers in the response to the HTTP client.
Syntax is Custom-Header: <contents of custom header>, defined in an <AddURLHandler> block, where <contents of custom header> are the complete header, which will be sent as is.
Implemented log log rollover on startup. Setting [Config] LogRollover = 1 in will cause an existing InetSvcs.OLD (or fcisd.old) to be renamed xxxYYYYMMDD_HHMM.log before the .log file is renamed to .old.
Fixed a problem where the wrong value was used as the domain name for Android notifications when the service is started at the first push notification.
The Android push notification service is now enabled by default.
Fixed "Wrapping issue on inbound HTML message".
Fixed crash outputting very long text/calendar property.
Fixed crash accepting (or declining) a calendar invitation with an unexpectedly formatted ATTENDEE property (e.g. ATTENDEE:
Fixed another issue when there is an HTML part, no DESCRIPTION in the event and the event is not attached to a message.
Fixed problem where the multipart/alternative end boundary wasn't output, which causes Outlook 2007 (and possibly later versions) grief.
Fixed crash retrieving (via IMAP or POP3) a calendar event in the mailbox that has an HTML altbody message body instead of a plain text message body. Also fixed some related message generation issues.
Added some randomness to the IMAP CRAM-MD5 challenge string.
Fix for incorrectly interpreting 12:00 as midnight when processing the date in 24 hour format.
All 127.x.x.x addresses are loopback addresses, not just
When parsing text/calendar objects, don't set a 1 minute alarm when no alarm was set in the object.
Recognize the MIME type text/vCard in SMTP messages.
Fixed problems sending attached contacts that had message body.
Check for timezone changes once a minute.
Fixed some misparsing of text/calendar objects.
When parsing text/calendar objects, handle the X-ALT-DESC property (if it's HTML) if the DESCRIPTION property is missing.
When parsing text/calendar objects, handle the ATTACH property. Not yet implemented when the event is added as an attachment.
Output the site name and ID in the log file when starting up.
Set the IMAP show sent items per the form when applying config changes.
IMAP: Prevent crash processing parameters in parentheses when there is only an opening parenthesis.
Added support for Windows Phone and Android client push notifications.

SET_DisableApplePNS = 1
SET_DisableBlackBerryPNS = 1
SET_DisableWinPhonePNS = 1
SET_DisableAndroidPNS = 1 (this is the default setting for this release)

The Google push notification API key and GCM Sender ID can be overridden in the with these settings:
GoogleAPIKey = "api key string"
GoogleCMSenderID = "sender id string"

Fixed problems with some event cancellation messages not being sent, or incorrectly formatted.
Accept ATTENDEE values that start with http:// or https:// (as sent by Google calendar.)
Allow incoming messages with text/calendar parts to be turned into events if the METHOD parameter is missing.
Various improvements to outputting calendar events/tasks:

- output task STATUS
- output DURATION if no start date
- output proper value for DTSTAMP
- output COMPLETED date for tasks
- output DUE date for tasks
- output PRIORITY for events/tasks via CalDAV
- don't output DTEND when there is no end date or duration

Fixed problem with some attendees receiving cancel event notifications instead of invitations.
Fixed problem with deleted attendees that required delivery retries.
Fixed problem where some calendar messages would be missing the event data.
Fixed issue where forwarded events would result in cancellation event notifications would be sent.
Fixed problem that caused all of a relayed message to end up in the smtp log.
Fixed problem where the $IsSpammer flag didn't work if set after the end of the headers.
Fixed typo when parsing header match enable webdav tokens (WevDAV_Basic).
Add a Date header if there is none in the message.
