Description

16 years ago
Clicking on a mailto link that has ONE recipient containing spaces gets parsed
as a LIST of recipients. 

Example:
<a
href="mailto:Lists%20-%20ETS%20Application%20Support">Lists&nbsp;-&nbsp;ETS&nbsp;Application&nbsp;Support</a>

This is a recipient named "Lists - ETS Application Support" which is a valid
address in our Outlook/Exchange system here.  When I click on this link in
Mozilla, and it hands it off to its internal mail composer, I get a list of
recipients: Lists, -, ETS, Application, and Support.  Other mail clients (e.g.,
Eudora) properly handle it as one recipient.  IE and Outlook (the default
configuration here) also handle it that way.

The spec at http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2368 says the recipient is a
comma-separated list (not space-separated). It seems to me Mozilla is violating
this.

I have seen this with Moz1.1RC1 under both WinNT4SP6 and RedHat Linux 7.1.
(To get Eudora to handle mailtos I had to use the fix at bug 11459 comment 86.)
