Description Tim Waugh 2002-02-13 13:54:15 EST
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" <first.last@domain.com>

When sending email to that contact, it is formed like this:

First Last <"First Last" <first.last@domain.com> >

which obviously isn't what we want. :-)

The 'primary email' field should just be first.last@domain.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?

Is this better in newer versions?
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2003-07-29 04:00:28 EDT
I'm afraid I have no idea.
Comment 5 Dave Malcolm 2004-09-20 19:10:05 EDT
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?
Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2004-09-23 06:51:15 EDT
Sorry, no to both questions.
Comment 7 Dave Malcolm 2004-09-23 17:31:53 EDT
Resolving as DEFERRED since I've got plenty of higher-priority bugs to
work on :-(
