  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If an AS2 message has double quotes surrounding the return URL
    it causes an Out of Memory error in Sterling B2B Integrator. The
    double quotes causes the MIME parsing code to use
    an incorrect code path, where it parses a URL as an
    e-mail mailto field. Since a URL is not a mail address, the
    parsing code gets caught in a loop looking for groups, which
    results in a list of group objects filling up until there is an
    out of memory error.
