From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; Q312461) BuildID: 20020530 I have a student whose e-mail address has quotation marks in his name. Mail from him looks like this: From: "Tsuen-Wan \"Johnny\" Ngan" <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: Dan Wallach <email@example.com> In the address book for auto-collected addresses, Mozilla gets this: First: Tsuen-Wan \"Johnny\" Last: Ngan Display: Tsuen-Wan \"Johnny\" Ngan So far, it's all reasonable. However, when I composed an e-mail to a list of names including this one, here's what was ultimately transmitted: To: "Eric E. Allen" <firstname.lastname@example.org>, "Johnny\" Ngan <email@example.com>, Scott Crosby <firstname.lastname@example.org>, David Wray Price <email@example.com>, Algis Rudys <firstname.lastname@example.org> Needless to say, this confused the local mail transport (in particular, it freaked out the AMaViS anti-virus software), and some of the people didn't get the message. Removing the quotation marks fixed the problem. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Add a weird entry, as above to your address book. Send a message to that address with some other ones. Go look in your sent mail folder and see the carnage that came out. Actual Results: Bogus e-mail headers. Expected Results: Non-bogus e-mail headers.
related: bug 89198 bug 39955 bug 134277 bug 18676 bug 117975 Couldn't reproduce the problem on linux trunk cvs 2002-07-11. - Changed sender address on a mail account, sender name of form: foo "foo" foo - Sent mail to myself to get the address collected - Sent a mail to the collected address as autocompleted and another address - Name was quoted correctly in headers on the mail in Sent folder and on the received message. - Did a "Reply all" of the message -> everything still quoted correctly. - The first/last names on the collected ab card don't look too good though: firstname: "foo \"foo\" lastname: foo" display: "foo \"foo\" foo"
Oh, nice, it is massively hosed in branch builds 2002-06-13-07-1.0.0, 2002-07-11-07-1.0. It fails at the "Sent mail to myself to get the address collected" step already, as the From address is mangled: From: "foo\" foo <email@example.com> and coming back from the server: From: "foo\" foo <firstname.lastname@example.org>"@my.isps.mail.server.here Apparently all this has been fixed on trunk by bug 134277...?

In 1.5 Final, I see the exact symptom described in the original report. The mail is sent correctly to all addresses. In the message window's envelope, the invalid name appears as: Johnny Ngan <email@example.com> Both mail servers that received this message did not have any problem receiving it, but the headers are just as described.
with SM suite I see something similar to comment 2, address book Tsuen-Wan \"Johnny\" Ngan compose Tsuen-Wan \"Johnny\" Ngan <firstname.lastname@example.org> receiver "Johnny\" Ngan <email@example.com>" relationship to bug 122352, bug 12427, bug 134277 (which didn't fix this bug), bug 222895?
