It automatically becomes cannot send messages to "a.b."@mydomain.tld, which is wrong. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Compose a message. 2. Send it to a.b.@mydomain.tld 3. Actual Results: It is being send to "a.b."@mydomain.tld Expected Results: It should be send to a.b.@mydomain.tld
I can't test this since a.b.@mydomain.tld is no real address (maybe you can mail me the real address to test this). Who sends you the "cannot send" message (Mozilla or does Mozilla just cite a server message) and what is the exact wording? I can't reproduce the adding of "" with an local part of a.b., but in general quoting of local-part is allowed. See RFC 2822, chapters 3.4.1. and 3.2.5.
Thunderbird cites a server message, it get a postmaster notification, meaning that TB sent out with "a.b."@mydomain.tld as recipient.
TB is version 0.7 on WinXP.
The tips on http://www.mozilla.org/quality/mailnews/mail-troubleshoot.html#smtp did not work (no log file got created), however, it does NOT seem to be a bug related to Thunderbird. I tried with another account, it does work in here, so it seems to be a bug in the SMTP server. Please check on your side whether you have this bug, too. If not, we can close this bug. Sorry for the confusion.
According to an expert: "That form must be quoted, see the RFC."
