non-ascii sender name is not showing if sent from imap/pop account
Build: 0512 PR1

1. Add one pop/imap account (name should be non-ascii, i used JA)
2. Add web mail/AOL account (name should be non-ascii)
3. Send a mail from pop account to every account. Repeat this with other accounts.
4. For example, when you check web mail/AOL inbox for the mail sent from either
pop/imap, non-ascii sender name is not showing.
5. When you check pop/imap inbox for the mail sent from either Netscape web
mail/AOL, those sender's non-ascii name is displayed correctly.

Jeesu, do you see the problem with an ASCII sender name?

I should have been more specific on this. Sorry... probably I was sleeping when
I filed this bug. :-)

Well....I don't think we have a problem in commercial features. Let me explain
again. For example,
1. You send a msg "TO" your pop account "FROM" every account (from itself, imap,
aol, web mail)
2. You check the inbox of your POP account.
3. If sent from either itself(pop) or imap, sender name is not non-ascii. EN
name is displayed although I specified non-ascii name in Mail & News Account
4. If the mail is from AOL/Web mail, sender's name is correctly displayed as in

I don't think non-ascii name of pop/imap account is picked up by Address Book as
collected addresses

A screenshot will follow

It turns out that mail servers replace non-ascii name created by client.
When I tried ascii name, it was also replaced by server created name.
polyglot was the only server which didn't replace client's non-ascii name
Marking it invalid
