User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) Build Identifier: Bugzilla Version 2.16.4 This page has a "Send Mail to Bug Owners" link that doesn't seem to work with multiple addresses. The problem seems to be that a comma is used instead of a semi-colon. FROM: <a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com,firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com">Send Mail to Bug Owners</a> TO: <a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org;email@example.com;firstname.lastname@example.org;email@example.com">Send Mail to Bug Owners</a> I am using Micro$oft Outlook 2000 SP3. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Make a query with multiple people on the list 2. press "Send Mail to Bug Owners" Actual Results: all of the email addresses munged together Expected Results: an email addressed to all bug owners on the list
Taking a look at RFC 2368 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2368.txt) it would appear this is Outlook's problem. The mailto: URL scheme does indeed allow for a comma-separated list of addresses. In fact, it's specifically used as an example in the RFC. I would file a bug with Microsoft.

Yes you are right. There is an "option" in outlook to allow commas as address separators If anyone else has this problem look here: Tools->Options->Preferences tab->Email Options->Advanced Email Options->Allow Comma as address separator check box.
fixing summary to make it easier to find
Summary: Web mail button formatted incorrectly → "Mail to bug owners" link doesn't work properly with Outlook
