IDN support not working/incomplete

Post by MailEnableQuestion » Tue Jul 06, 2021 7:37 pm

I found a few very old topics regarding IDN. However, a few year ago MailEnable 9 was released which is supposed to support IDN, as reads:
Introducing MailEnable 9
Version 9 at a glance:
International Domain Name (IDN) support
However, I cannot log-in using an "Umlaut" domain/email, like
I expect that MailEnable decodes the domain name for me. Instead I have to enter the Puny encoded address.

Also the UI does not encode non ASCII characters in email addresses correctly:

Other UI elements like the action buttons, tooltips, and column headers show Umlauts correctly:

I am using MailEnable 10.23 with German language.

Does MailEnable actual support IDN? Maybe it is disabled by default?
