User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030903 Firebird/0.6.1+
Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.2 (20030901)

Began using TB 0.2 yesterday, and after a few ng posts in
netscape.mozilla.firebird, noticed that the sender column is showing the user
part of my email address rather than the "Your name" field.

Account settings:
Your name: joe t.
Email address: thook[DELETE]

Sender column for my posts shows: thook[DELETE]erov

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See netscape.mozilla.thunderbird or .firebird
2. Look for my posts.

To do it yourself, i don't know. Most everyone else's name seems to appear

Expected Results:  
TBird should be displaying "joe t." in the sender column, as it did in 0.1 and
all other Mozilla mail clients.

Screen shot of the issue

The top item highlighted was posted with TB 0.2, the bottom was posted with (i
think) TB 0.1.

Tried deleting the secnews account and recreating (running into <A
HREF="">bug#216245</A>) the
account. Problem still exists.

Upon suggestion, i removed the [ ] brackets from the email address. All is well
now. Must have been the brackets that were confusing TBird. At least, that's the
only explanation i have. i don't know if this still qualifies as a bug, since no
one else has tried it. i suppose it's bad to include invalid characters for an
email address in that field, eh?
