RFC 8601, "Message Header Field for Indicating Message Authentication Status", May 2019

Source of RFC: dmarc (art)

Errata ID: 6026
Status: Reported

Section 2.2 says:

     resinfo = [CFWS] ";" methodspec [ CFWS reasonspec ]
               [ CFWS 1*propspec ]


It should say:

     resinfo = [CFWS] ";" methodspec [ CFWS reasonspec ]
               *( CFWS propspec )


Notes:

When there is more than one propspec, they are separated by spaces. Every implementation I know puts in the spaces. This was correct in RFC 7601, but see unconfirmed erratum 5435 which introduced the mistake.

While we're at it, take out the [CFWS] at the end of the definition of pvalue which is redundant and confusing.

Section Appendix B says:

                  spf=pass smtp.mailfrom=example.net

It should say:

                  spf=pass smtp.mailfrom=sender@example.net

Notes:

This error appears three places in Appendix B. smtp.mailfrom takes a mailbox, not a domain name.

The example in section 2.7.4 at the bottom of page 21 is OK.
