Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 207809
Sending mail to an RFC822 "group" fails (legal address misparsed)
Last modified: 2018-04-11 09:28:24 EDT
Description of problem:
When I compose a message thus:
To: Some people: ;
Thunderbird refuses to send it, popping up a dialog box which (incorrectly)
"Some people: ;" is not a valid address because it is not of the form user@host.
You must correct it before sending the email.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compose mail with a group in recipient header.
2. Press 'send'
Thunderbird refuses to send perfectly valid mail.
Thunderbird sends mail.
"Addresses occur in several message header fields to indicate senders
and recipients of messages. An address may either be an individual
mailbox, or a group of mailboxes."
group = display-name ":" [mailbox-list / CFWS] ";"
This probably also affects FC6 -- would be good to get it fixed.
Fedora Core 5 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the
updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or
Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please
let us know in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back
from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.
Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.
Thanks in advance.
We haven't got any reply to the last question about reproducability of the bug
with Fedora Core 6, Fedora 7, or Fedora devel. Mass closing this bug, so if you
have new information that would help us fix this bug, please reopen it with the
Reopening -- I believe this bug persists. It would be trivial for anyone who
actually _uses_ thunderbird (unlike me) to confirm.
We found that this bug has been already registered in the upstream database
(https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=83521) and believe that it is more
appropriate to let it be resolved upstream.
Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug
tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration
in future updates.
Thank you for the bug report.
