Attempted to send to several persons. Opened "addresss book" from the compose
window and selected several names. After saying OK and returning to compose
window to write the e-mail, I decided to include additional people. I reopened
the address book window and found "false" or incorrect names (e.g. "Lynn", with
no associated e-mail address) and cross-linked names (e.g. "Walt" with his OTHER
address shown...not the one I had selected, but the one I selected was ALSO
shown). These were people in the address book but the "address to" was NOT shown
as they appear in the address book itself. I deleted the wrong ones and closed
the address book, then returned to find that they and other "wrong" ones were
listed. However, the "send to" field of the compose window did not include any
of these "wrong" listings.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.From Mail window, open "Compose"
2.Select "address" and choose names to which to send (I used BCC for all names).
3.After selecting names (I had chosen ten names), choose "OK." 
4.From "compose" begin typing a few sentences then stop at any point.
5.Re-select "address" to add more names to your "send to" group. Without doing
anything at all from this window, note the incorrect names/formats shown in the
"address to" field in the address book window. They will either be just a name
with no e-mail address or other non-sensical addresses.

Actual Results:  
I deleted the wrong addresses, returned to the compose window, then selected the
"address" button, only to find the same wrong ones I had just deleted and one
different address had been added to the list once again.

Expected Results:  
The names shown in the "address to" field should reflect the name as it is
listed in the field called "Display" in the address book itself.

Default theme used. Just downloaded this version today, no custom changes have
been made to any setups. The setup being used is your default "out of the box"

this is either an address book or mail composition problem, not mail database.
