This was a reported in <http://www.heise.de/open/news/foren/S-Ist-sowieso-Schrott/forum-130422/msg-14242673/read/> Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Write a Mail to email@example.com and than 2.write a Mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (Attention! The domain is blah.de is valid) Actual Results: can't enter the adress email@example.com because the autocomplete funtion change the email-adress always to firstname.lastname@example.org Expected Results: send a mail to: email@example.com
Hardly a typical use case;) If you really need it I think it should work if you open the url mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org from a browser
Following is test result with Tb 22.214.171.124(MS Win-XP). (Case-1) None of two mail addresses is registered to Address Book. Both could be set in To: field. (Deletion of '.blah.de' works even when auto-completed.) (Case-2) Only email@example.com is registered to Address Book. Problem was re-produced. (Case-3) Both mail addresses are registered to Address Book. Both mail addresses were listed as candidates, and any of them could be chosen or typed. Workaround: Add firstname.lastname@example.org also in your Address Book.
similar behaviour in TB 126.96.36.199 (WXP): "John Doe <email@example.com>" is in the adress book. It is impossible to have only "firstname.lastname@example.org" in the address line without editing the address book. TB autocompletes to show the full name, wich I didn't want do disclose with the respective mail.
Fast Workaround: (works in TB3.0) type address followed by ",", then hit enter. autocompletion is interrupted by delimiting ","
