From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.9+) Gecko/20020401 BuildID: 2002040103 I've got a friend who's called andré. If I receive an email from him and hit reply then only <andr> is entered as emailaddress in the to: field. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. send an email with a sendername with special characters 2. hit reply Actual Results: only the characters up to the special characters are entered in the to field Expected Results: the whole name and emailaddress should be entered
I see this with many more people from various countries. and the name also whows up wrong in my inbox (as andr kamphuis instead of andré kamphuis). I can however send an email to "andré" if I type the name myself in the to field...
anyway, in mozilla 1.1 (win2k), when creating a new email account, you can not input your name with special characters, such as andré.
Mozilla 1.1b nightly build Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020901 but it works well when i reply a email which sender name is andré.@sun.com
*** Bug 290738 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
The following is much likely linked to this bug: When replying to a sender with special characters (umlauts etc...) such as Michael Bähr <firstname.lastname@example.org> , two replies are created: Michael and Bähr <email@example.com> The first entry is obviously causing rejected with an "Invalid Address" error message, the second works, though being corrupted. This bug seems to be around for a long time now. Any ideas if or when it'll be solved? Cheers
Ralfito: that's bug 254519 (via bug 292603). And so is the dupe. This bug itself seems WFM, using thunderbird latest branch build /linux. ->WFM, but if someone still sees it, feel free to reopen.
