Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 59830
importing addresses from pine
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:40:24 EDT
Description of Problem:
The import agent for getting addresses from a Pine address book sometimes
creates entries like:
Full name: First Last
Primary Email: "first last" <email@example.com>
When sending email to that contact, it is formed like this:
First Last <"First Last" <firstname.lastname@example.org> >
which obviously isn't what we want. :-)
The 'primary email' field should just be email@example.com in this instance.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
If this only happens sometimes, do you have some pine addressbook entries that
exhibit it so I can beat on it a little?
Created attachment 45785 [details]
Try this entry.
Is this better in newer versions?
I'm afraid I have no idea.
Sorry this bug has gone for so long without activity.
Relevant code appears to be in
evolution/mail/importers/pine-importer.c; it loads the file ~/.addressbook
I had a go at stepping through the import in the evolution-2.0.0 code;
currently it entirely fails to parse your attachment, leading to no
contacts being created.
Do you have any more test data I can run on this? Do you still care
about this bug?
Sorry, no to both questions.
Resolving as DEFERRED since I've got plenty of higher-priority bugs to
work on :-(
