Description of problem:
When sending mail with /bin/mail, it takes user's real name from /etc/passwd and
includes it in From field. Parsing of the real name is broken, since real name
field in /etc/passwd can contain additional information, like office and office
phone (fill all fields using chfn).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.fill all fields
3.su - someuser
5.check email from someotheruser
Actual Results: From field looks like this:
From: "John Doe,Redhat Inc.,+123 1 1234567,123 1 1234568" <email@example.com>
Expected Results: From: "John Doe" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Thank you for your notice.
This problem does not occure in version mailx-8.1.1-33.
