When sending an email to an address like "Group1 <firstname.lastname@example.org>", the standard e-mail parsing rules should cause this e-mail to be sent to "email@example.com". However, if Group1 exists, the e-mail will be sent to the e-mails that are part of Group1 and not firstname.lastname@example.org. To reproduce: 1. Use an empty profile 2. In the address book, create a group called "Group1" with one more more addresses inside it. 3. Compose a new email 4. In the "To" field, enter "Group1 <email@example.com>" 5. Hit Send The e-mail was sent to all of the e-mail addresses in Group1 with no warning or prompt message. The e-mail should have been sent to the address "firstname.lastname@example.org" using the standard address format. This bug is very serious -- an e-mail can be sent unintentionally to an entire group of people (this actually happened, and it was not good).
