No connection happens at all if password contains a double-quote


Description Nick Baker 2016-10-08 22:52:36 CEST
Mailwatch makes no attempt at all to connect if e-mail password has a " in it.

Noticed Mailwatch didn't seem to do anything at all;  in fact, there were not even any incoming connection attempts whatsoever in the logs of my own e-mail server.  This changed as soon as I removed the " character in my password in Mailwatcher's settings, after which doing so and clicking Update Now again, my server logs finally indicated an incoming connection and (properly-failed) attempt to authenticate by my home computer.

This occurs in Mailwatcher 1.2.0, the one included with Linux Mint 18 XFCE.
