Details

Ampersand in the To: field causes xml error. It looks like
when the RDF is written meta characters in the content aren't
being quoted. I'm not sure what component this belongs to.

Error message:
XML Error in file 'imap://nsmail-2:143/fetch>UID>/Inbox>10152', Line Number: 76,
Col Number: 57, Description: not well-formed

Verified as fixed on win32, mac, and linux.  I tested under POP and IMAP.  I
also tried using a rich text and plain text editor.
