Affects Version/s: Community Edition 201602 GA
Fix Version/s: None
Security Level: external (External user)
Environment:Server: Ubuntu Server 14.04, Alfresco Community 201604
Clients: Windows 10, tested with Outlook 2013 and Windows Mail 17.6868
The Outlook Clients we tested with (versions below) issue a "UID SEARCH" or "SEARCH" command shortly after authenticating to an IMAP server - like this:
SEARCH UNDELETED SINCE 11-Feb-2016
UID SEARCH SINCE 08-May-2016
All SEARCH commands fail on Alfresco community 201604 - no result to the SEARCH command is returned, and the IMAP connection either runs into a timeout, or is closed immediately. It does not seem to matter if SEARCH or UID SEARCH is used, or which SEARCH expression
Example session with telnet:
1 login admin password
1 OK LOGIN completed.
2 select INBOX
- 10 EXISTS
- 0 RECENT
- OK [UNSEEN 2] Message 2 is the first unseen
- OK [UIDVALIDITY 1462872941] UIDs valid
- OK [UIDNEXT 889] Predicted next UID
- FLAGS (\Answered \Deleted \Draft \Flagged \Seen)
- OK [PERMANENTFLAGS (\Answered \Deleted \Draft \Flagged \Seen)] Limited
2 OK [READ-WRITE] SELECT completed.
3 SEARCH SEEN
Connection closed by foreign host.
This renders IMAP completly useless for Outlook Clients - no mails are displayed.
