Moved from Moz 1.6 to 1.7 and now the wrong recipient info is pulled from the
header for display in the message lists and the Normal (as opposed to "All")
headers view.

Previously, the name/address of the addressee as entered by the sender would be
displayed, regardless of where the message ended up. However, if the message is
forwarded to another mail address (or, as in my case, forwarded from multiple
accounts through several mail systems to one final collection address), the
final address is shown. 

Not only that, but the "Normal" header no longer shows any secondary recipient
addresses. For instance, an email sent to myself and one other person at my
office only showed my final collection address as the recipient. I unnecessarily
forwarded a copy of the mail to the other recipient as Mozilla did not show that
person as being a recipient of the original mail.

To be precise, it seems that Mozilla 1.6 took recipient info from the
"X-Original-To:" line, whereas Mozilla 1.7 takes recipient info from the final
"Received" information.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Send mail to an address that forwards to another address or send mail to
multiple "To" addressees.
2. Collect that mail.
3. Read the "Normal" header and look at the recipient info column in the message

Actual Results:  
Incorrect recipient info shown.

Expected Results:  
The original address as written by the sender should have appeared in the
recipient info column of the message lis, and that same information along with
any secondary addresee information should have appeared in the "Normal" header view.

This behavior appeared the same day I upgraded to 1.7. This was,
conincidentally, the same day one of my mail companies "upgraded" my account and
changed the behavior of their forwarding system. The bug is in THEIR system, not
