Is it possible to hang hMailServer with wrong email-address?

Post by Rainer » 2012-05-08 14:21

Hello, recently my hMailServer creates error messages likes this:

"ERROR" 2204 "2012-05-08 13:16:32.196" "Severity: 2 (High), Code: HM5339, Source: TCPConnection::HandleWrite, Description: An unknown error occurred while handling buffer write."
"ERROR" 2260 "2012-05-08 13:16:32.196" "Severity: 3 (Medium), Code: HM5136, Source: TCPConnection::HandleRead, Description: An error occured while parsing data. Data length: 6, Data: RETR 9. Remote IP: 213.183.93.10"
"ERROR" 2204 "2012-05-08 13:16:32.196" "Severity: 2 (High), Code: HM4208, Source: IOCPQueueWorkerTask::DoWork, Description: An unknown error occured while handling asynchronous requests."
"ERROR" 2260 "2012-05-08 13:16:32.446" "Severity: 2 (High), Code: HM4208, Source: IOCPQueueWorkerTask::DoWork, Description: An unknown error occured while handling asynchronous requests."

Now the server is hanging and only killing the HMS-Processes and restart the service will help.
Is it possible to hang hMailServer with wrong formated email-adresses like 'dummy@bingobongo.com'?
Note, the address begins with ' and ends with '.

My HMS-Version is: 5.3.3-B1879.

Kind regards :)

Latest 5.4 beta contains a fix for that.
If at first you don't succeed, bomb disposal probably isn't for you! ヅ

Yeah as DooM says 5.4 seems to solve IOCP errors from what we can tell but I've never seen it happen due to mal-formed email address.. Just an odd timing-related issue from we've seen especially under IMAP/SMTP load.

Hello Bill, hello Doom, THX for answering.

Is it a easy way to to upgrade from my version to 5.4?
In earlier versions it was.

Kind regards :)
