(This bug imported from BugSplat, Netscape's internal bugsystem. It was known there as bug #343713 http://scopus.netscape.com/bugsplat/show_bug.cgi?id=343713 Imported into Bugzilla on 03/10/99 18:56) Created by Jason Blue (firstname.lastname@example.org) on Monday, February 15, 1999 2:18:06 PM PST Additional Details : When creating a new list in an address book, Netscape ignores the order the list members were added, and instead seems to use a random order. Unfortunatelly, at times the order is critical; for example, when sending mail to Senators and their aides, politics dictates that the Senator email addresses appear prior to the aides. Please enter defect so that Netscape maintains, when creating or modifying lists, the order specified for the list members. From: "Jason D. Blue" <email@example.com> Thu 3:13 PM Subject:Re: Case 99183 & 99173 To: firstname.lastname@example.org Stuart, FIRST, Regarding 99183: I believe I found the cause (or at least one of them). Try the following: 1.Create a new address book under 4.5. 2.Create five new cards in this address book, for example: a.a new card with a display name of "McArthur,Stuart" (without quotes). b.Create another new card, this one with a display name of "Jason D. Blue". c.Create new card for "John Public". d.Create a new card for "Jamie Private" e.Create the last new card, for "John Blanco Losada". 3.Create a new list. 4.Drag to the list the above cards, one at a time, in the following specific order: e (John Blanco Losada) a (Jason D. Blue) c (John Public) b (McArthur,Stuart) d (Jamie Private) 5.Click OK to save the list. 6.Open the list, you will now find the list is NOT in the order the cards where dragged to the list. In fact, they are instead in the order the cards were added to the address book itself (a, b, c, d, e). Please enter a defect report.
This was reproduced locally. When you go and add a list of users it places them in the order you put them in the list but when you send the list it then puts them in the order in which they were entered in the addressbook. 2/24 dchaffin - have searched database and not found this defect in 4.5 so am putting in a new defect on this problem.
mass-setting TFV to 4.6 (may be changed or RESOLVED after a more detailed triage or evaluation)
RFE's will not be considered in the 4.x release. Adding lchiang to Cc for consideration into 5.0.
Is this RFE possible to do? Reassign to phil. Pls reassign as needed. (I tried to reassign to email@example.com, but it's not a valid name.
Sounds like an RDF sorting issue. Reassigning to chuang for M7 since that's when the backend for mailing lists is supposed to be done (according to http://www.mozilla.org/mailnews/milestones.html)
Move to M8
mailing list is post beta, move to M11.
This does not need to be fixed in PR1
Move to Post Beta M14
Since this bug is marked P4, moving to M17. If you disagree, please let me know.
Target Milestone: M15 → M17
Not critical for this release. M20.
Target Milestone: M17 → M20
This is a duplicate of another bug assigned to chuang about sorting items in a mailing list, I believe.
Target Milestone: M20 → Future
