Summary: [HAB] we should add any email we send a message TO into our HAB. → [FEATURE] [HAB] we should add any email we send a message TO into our HAB.
This is correct, we should add email addresses for all recipients we send messages to. Sending bug to David because I think he wrote this code.
I only wrote the address capture when reading messages code. I think it's not nearly as useful to capture address you send to, since you don't have the user name, but I can try to figure out where the sending code happens (I've never touched that code before). cc'ing people who might have a clue about message sending.

fixed in compose\src\nsMsgSend.cpp
the curmudgeon in me knows that the second people discover that misaddressed addresses still go in the history AB, I'm going to get lots of bugs filed on that, but there's nothing I can do about it.
help wanted bug: when you get a bounced email, be fancy and pop an alert that says: "this looks like a bounce. do you want to remove address <foobar@cheese> from your address books?"
Another help wanted bug should be: if the recipient you send to is already in your personal address book, then perhaps that person shouldn't get added to the hab?
Using 19991028 builds on win98, mac and linux this is fixed, any name that is addressed using To: is entered in the HB.
