Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 63229
kmail uses whole GECOS field instead of breaking it up
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:41:53 EDT
Description of Problem:
Unlike most mailers, when you simply enter a local username into kmail as a mail target
(i.e. pbrown, brosenkr), KMail guesses that their real name is the whole GECOS field,
instead of breaking the field up on comma (",") boundaries. Thus instead of mailers like
mutt, pine, evolution, etc. guessing my name for pbrown is "Preston Brown", my name
"Preston Brown,OS Development/Director of Linux Development,1-919-547-0012 x44280"
That's a little verbose.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
KMail 1.4 (kde 3.0.0)
This bug is reported against old release of Red Hat Linux or Fedora Core
that is no longer supported. Chances are that it has been already fixed in
newer Fedora Core release. If you still experience the problem with
current release of Fedora Core, please update the Version field (you may
need to switch Product to Fedora Core first) in the bug report and put it
back to NEW state.
Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at
Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do
want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks.
If this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release, please
open a new bug with the relevant information.
Closing as CANTFIX.
