See […]

This happens all the time.. Quite often, a service provider will provide instructions for HMAC generation, and will provide a hexadecimal HMAC key in the example, such as: 01A0251D601FEF3305A38B124068A001CF3F099AA187DB2886314C67CDFDEBCD This is implicitly ambiguous because there are two ways to interpret the instructions: 1) The HMAC key is composed of the ascii bytes ‘0’, ‘1’, ‘A’, ‘0’, ‘2’, ‘5’, etc. In […]
The Chilkat MailMan class can fetch emails from a POP3 server in two ways: by sequence number, or by UIDL. When an email is fetched by UIDL, or fetched in a way such that a full mapping of UIDL’s to sequence numbers was retrieved, Chilkat will add an “X-UIDL” header to the Email object that is returned. This allows for […]
