Description Orion Poplawski 2006-03-23 18:04:05 EST
Description of problem:

I'm trying to report a piece of spam I got, so I do ctrl-u to get the source,
ctrl-a to select all, ctrl-c to copy.  Close that windor and then open a new
message.  Paste with ctrl-v above my signature, then go up and enter
"abuse@above.net" in the To: field, hit enter to advance and at this point
thunderbird freezes while spellchecking the message.  "abuse@above.net" is still
in red.

Not sure that there is an easy was for the spell checker to avoid this stuff.  I
guess I need to be forwarding the email as an attachment, but I need to be sure
to send the full message including all headers.

Also, it seems to recheck the message each time I add a new recipient, even
though I haven't changed the text of the message, though I have selected text in it.

I'm closing this because forwarding as an attachement works and sends the full
headers and avoids the spellcheck issue.  I posted the bug anyways though
because many web sites still instruct you to use the ctrl-u/view source method
with Thunderbird.
