User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1) Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031208 If a message containing a malformed address is saved as a draft then closed and reopened from the draft folder, the message addressing can not be modified. This is problematic in some situations where the user generates an address list outside of Netscape and pastes it into place. This could also indicate a more serious internal processing issue. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Compose a new message. Use the following addressing: To: "addr1" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: "addr2" <email@example.com>, "addr3" <>, "addr4" <firstname.lastname@example.org> 2. Save the message as a draft and close the composition window 3. Browse to the Drafts folder and double click on the draft message Actual Results: Observe that the address fields remain greyed out indefinitely Expected Results: Either: 1) Produced an error message when the malformed email address was entered in the first place, or 2) Populated the address fields as usual, including the malformed address This is an issue in Netscape 7.1, Mozilla 1.5 and Mozilla 1.6b
Also visible in Thunderbird 1.0.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
I don't know what's been done to fix this, but it's working much more nicely with TB 1.5; all the addressing fields are filled and operating, except the one corresponding to the illegal address, which is simply blank. Dan Roberts, can you verify with a Moz 1.8 or Seamonkey 1.0 build? If so, please mark this bug: Resolved | WorksForMe
