when an ldap query is done in the Mail application and the response comes back
"John, smith", <jsmith.company.com>
upon hitting enter the qoutations are dropped (in the To field) and as a result,
the addres becomes invalid.  i.e., it becomes as shown below and Mozilla Mail
refuses to send the mail:
John, smith, <jsmith.company.com>

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure Mozilla address-book to query an ladap server
2. start composing a new email to an email address that is provisioned in the
ldap server

Actual Results:  
mozilla drops the qoutations and makes the address invalid.

Could this be related with the fix for bug 182192?
Note that this bug is reported on a build from 20040514, and bug 182192 was
fixed exactly that day.

"John, smith", <jsmith.company.com>

It's that extra ',' between the quoted name and the address that causes the
problem. Why is your ldap server returning that? I think we break that apart
into two addresses.

ok, blocking 1.7- since it appears this is not a client side problem. 
renominate if the diagnosis changes.

yes, is it your ldap server or is that value in one of your local addressbooks?

one way to tell is by the icon.  I've got a screen shot that explains...

ramin, following the attached screen shot, where does your result come from: 
local or ldap?
