confused over email address in HTTP Header restriction

OK. I understand that we can get the BES to put in a persons email address or PIN in the HTTP header. Now, for security reasons, I want to ensure that this only happens for certain domains. Depending on which KB article you read this is done by updating the RIMPUBLIC.PROPERTY file with the following entry

 

.handler.http.header.domain=acme\.net;acme\.com;.+\.acme\.net;.+\.acme\.com

(taken from http://www.blackberry.com/knowledgecenterpublic/livelink.exe/fetch/2000/348583/800738/800792/801079/How_To_-_Add_an_email_address_and_PIN_to_HTTP_requests_from_the_BlackBerry_Mobile_Data_Service.html?nodeid=1221441&vernum=0)

 

or 

 

application.handler.http.header.domain=.+\.rim\.net

Questions:

 

1. In one of the example there is a '.' (period) in front of the handler.http.header.domain= 

Is that right? or an error in the article?

 

2. What is with the '\' in the domain  . Should it just be  application.handler.http.header.domain=rim.net

3. What is with the '+' in the domain. What is its significance?

Re: confused over email address in HTTP Header restriction

I think you found an error.

 

application.handler.http.header.domain=rim\.net;+\.rim\.net

 

domain first then add the extra after.
