History AB Front End


(SeaMonkey :: MailNews: Address Book & Contacts, defect, P2)



(Not tracked)



(Reporter: scottputterman, Assigned: scottputterman)



bug tracking feature in Summary.
Blocks: 10791
Target Milestone: M10
QA Contact: lchiang → esther
Are we still on track for M10 on this one?
This one is in M10 only to provide something usable to David B. when he creates
the History AB backend code.  We may need to make some improvements to it later.
The backend bug is marked fixed by david b.
Target Milestone: M10 → M11
David and Candice have done the hard work here.  The UI needs to know that the
Collected Addresses may not be edited, only deleted.  I will get that in as soon
as the backend provides an api for determining that it is read-only.
Whiteboard: [PR1]
I think we need this for PR1, so I added a note to the Status Whiteboard
Target Milestone: M11 → M14
The history ab front end is partially working.  We have the history ab in the
list of address books and it is populated with addresses.  The missing code is
that which would prevent editing of cards in the history ab.  Moving to M14.
Sol, please let me know if this extra bit of functionality if required for PR1.
It's fine if we don't have the code that would prevent editing of cards in the
history address book for PR1.
Target Milestone: M14 → M15
Removing [PR1]. We're using keywords instead now, and I don't think the
remaining part of this bug is beta1.
Whiteboard: [PR1]
For beta2, the part that matters is meeting the "prefs spec" (not sure what that
is from my notes) and does NOT include the "uneditable view."  We wouldn't hold
beta2 if users could edit the history AB.
Priority: P3 → P2
From most important to least important front end work:
1. Ability (in "Preferences") to turn off email address collection
2. Warning dialog - "You have X entries in Collected Addresses. The recommended 
maximum for optimum performance is Y."
3. Ability (in "Preferences") to specify domain names for which if a sender 
belongs to, he/she will not be added to the "Collected Addresses" AB
4. Collected Addresses AB is non-editable, but cards may be copied to another 
address book where they may be edited.

Since this is a new feature, we will want to hear from users (through beta 
feedback and usability tests), which of the above they need to increase the 
usefulness of this feature.

At this point, I would say that #1 is critical for b2.
move to M16.  Not M15 stoppers
Target Milestone: M15 → M16
Scott, clearing Hangas' plate for skins work.  Probably need to reassign some of 
these again.
Assignee: hangas → putterman
It looks like Suresh fixed #1. Moving the rest to M17.
Target Milestone: M16 → M17
It seems like these are a bunch of little bugs now.  Removing the feature.
Summary: [FEATURE] History AB Front End → History AB Front End
Target Milestone: M17 → Future
moving to future milestone.
I checked the Preferences->Mail and Newsgroup -> Addressing are enabled on
incoming as well as outing messages.
I tried a new profile on single account POP or IMAP, no problem. 

But then I added another account into the new profile, it starts to have
It behaves inconsistently, sometime it does, sometimes it does not add to
Address Book. Have a feeling it has to do with multiple profiles.
