Re: Latest IE patch breaking non username:[email protected] websites?
I rather treat this patch as a _bug_. user:[email protected] format is used (I have 3 or 4 instances in monitoring system, to allow automatic proxy onto the system with 'guest' user name, for example). To block scam, it was sufficient to restrict username length, or to set up a checkbox in explorer setting. The whole idea is wrong - instead of fixing IE (just show REAL host name, for example), MS decided to drop functionality. We (in our company) adviced people _against_ this patch. It broke legitimate addresses, and fix a very rare and exotic problem... which can be fixed by many other ways. > > Sorry - > > Mostly non-password encoded forms that don't refresh when you hit > submit.
