Description

I noticed a bug with items posted by RBE today.

On the Commons, RBE is operating in IMAP mode with the auto-connect option turned on.

When this happens, PHPMailer's Date timestamp does not use the correct timestamp. So, if you made a reply to an item via RBE, the resulting emails are sent with an older date. For example, the last couple of RBE items had the timestamp of April 10th, 4:25pm ET!

I've implemented a fix for RBE, but have also created a ticket for BuddyPress.

#1 Updated by Raymond Hoh over 4 years ago

To be a bit more clearer, this issue affects the emails received in your email client. On the Commons, the forum posts have the correct timestamp.

Fixed in https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/commit/05a6491c34ae9564c91b81de13c1220993d640b2.

I haven't deployed this as a hotfix due to the recent changes to our Git repo.

Thanks, Ray! I'd noticed this earlier today and opened #7996, which I'll close as a duplicate. Any idea why it popped up just today?

I've straightened out the repos on the production and dev sites, and deployed your hotfix to the master branch and to production.

I didn't see #7996. Sorry about that!

Any idea why it popped up just today?

I refactored how IMAP auto-connect works due to the POST issues we were experiencing with the server about a month ago. See #7762.

The timestamp issue has happened on-and-off since then, but it wasn't really noticeable until now because IMAP auto-connect has been working without issues since April 10th.

There were times before April 10th where I had to manually restart the IMAP connection so that kind of hid the issue until now.

The good thing is I found a BuddyPress bug in the process!
