I thinks that it would be pissitive for the Thunderbird to accept addresses separated by semi-colons, as thuis is the most used format in other mail-clients, and this way it woill be aesyer for the people to move from other to Thunderbird, as they would not need to write in a different way they have been doing for time... Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.write addresses separated by ";" 2.click on send 3.an error message appears and a not valid record is created in the addressbook Actual Results: An error message appears telling that can not send a message to the address <<>>, and a not valid record is created in the addressbook Expected Results: Act the same way as separating the addresses with commas ",", thats it, split the line in multiple address lines
The semicolon has a specific use, defined in RFC822, as a group terminator. This looks like; groupname: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org ; <- semicolon ends group You'll see this often in the form: Undisclosed-Recipients:; Mozilla does not support groups well, if at all -- bug 83521, bug 110605.
