Description

11 years ago
User-Agent:       Opera/9.50 (Windows NT 6.0; U; en)
Build Identifier: 8.0.0b2

In old Eudora, when I sent a mail to any of my lists, it was sent like this:

to: listname: ad1@example.com, ad2@example.com, ad3@example.com;
(as described in some RFC)

The good thing with that is: The mail server sends the emails to the addressees, without including all the addresses of the other recipients. So nobody knows who else is on the list and also does not get to know their email addresses.

When I send email to a list in Penelope, it seems it sends it out as
to: ad1@example.com; ad2@example.com; ad3@example.com;

So everybody knows everyone else's email address. Why not follow RFC?


Reproducible: Always

Basically this is a request for using 'Group Syntax' notation when sending, much like the non-Mozilla Eudora did.

I would also like to see this. Accepting bug.

Note, I've had some thoughts on this for Thunderbird, I'll add some bug dependencies when I get time.

Related to this is the fact that, irritatingly, Penelope wants to split any list of e-mail addresses into separate lines. So I can't tab or hit Return/Enter to get to a new field (such as cc:), I have to use the mouse and even then have to select what the field is going to be (To: or cc:, etc). It really slows down the process.
