Mail is undeliverable. I receive a reply "Returned mail: user unknown" when
sending to frequent recipients. However, the address listed as the recipient of
the two mails that I sent was not one that I sent it to. The listed address on
the return notice was macpry921@aol.com. That is not even close to the addresses
that I sent the e-mails to.   

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. entered the "To" address
2. typed message
3. hit "send"

Actual Results:  
I received the reply "Returned mail: user unknown"

Expected Results:  
Delivered the mail.

I was able to e-mail bugzilla to obtain a password. I was also able to
successfully send mail to myself. One address that I tried to send mail to was
my office, a government agency and the other was to an address using a wireless
service.

Are you sure that the returned messages was sent by you and is not a spam/virus
e-mail to a random/wrong address with a faked sender (your address)?
