I just received a new email notification of a change in the cc list for Bug 8849. The email message does not get formatted well in Communicator 4.7. The "Old Value" and "New Value" columns are not aligned. I don't know if this is a Communicator bug in formatting text messages.
This is what the message looks like in my Communicator 4.7 mail window: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8849 firstname.lastname@example.org changed: What |Old Value |New Value ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- CCemail@example.com,ramiro@firstname.lastname@example.org,shaver@ |teware.com,dveditz@netscape.|mozilla.org,ramiro@fateware |com,email@example.com,larr|.com,firstname.lastname@example.org,a |email@example.com,chofmann@firstname.lastname@example.org,chofmann |scape.com,srinivas@email@example.com,larryh@netsca |com,firstname.lastname@example.org,wtc@n|pe.com,email@example.com |etscape.com,firstname.lastname@example.org,|m,email@example.com,wtc@ne |firstname.lastname@example.org,cpratt@ne|tscape.com,email@example.com, |tscape.com,waterson@firstname.lastname@example.org,cpratt@n |.co |etscape.com,
The best solution to this would be to only show changes to multi-valued fields. When you add or remove a keyword or a person to cc, you generally don't care about the other values.

if we make new-email tech the default, doesn't that fix this bug? we're looking to do that for 2.12
I am using new-email tech.
I'm not exactly sure what the bug is here. Your attachment is what I'm used to receiving, but I've never seen what you pasted in any version of N4. Was it pasted correctly? If not, what is the exact problem here?
This bug doesn't really bother me, so I'm going to close it.

If it's a bug as you say I'd like to know what it is. There are plenty of other bugs around addressing various issues with the old value/new value section, and chances are it's a dupe, but I'd like to know what the problem was. Even if it doesn't bother you, if there was a suggestion you had how to improve things then others might benefit from fixing it.
verif invalid per reporters comments. There's other bugs open on this situation though, so it's not getting lost.
