    ClearQuest will let you commit raw data into record that may
    contain some characters that are not considered valid
    XML-1.0.  While this is supported by ClearQuest, it is not
    supported by EmailPlus when used by the EmailRelay.
    Therefore emails sent from records with these characters
    cannot be relayed to the intended recipient.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearQuest 8.0.0.9 and 8.0.1.2.
    
    The ClearQuest EmailPlus 2.2 package now correctly handles
    invalid XML-1.0 characters when used in a record.
