I tried to send an email and it would not accept the To: address that I entered. I also tryed to change the Reply-To: line to a To: line and it sent the mail to my address that was listed as the reply address. I would call this a critical bug, so i marked it that way.
What do you mean "won't accept"? The message didn't send when you pressed send? Or, did the address you enter in the To: field disappear?
leave unconfirmed pending further information from the reporter.
reassigning to ducarroz.

What build are you using? Any update to this? Otherwise, I have to mark as worksforme.
From Jimmy via email: i am currently using build # 2000061201, but i have changed this almost every day since the problem was noticed. i am still haveing the same problem with this build. -- Jimmy- can you give me step by step instructions of each thing you do? I'd like to be able to reproduce this problem. Thanks
From Chuck via email: ok, the first thing i do is open a new message to write. i compose a message the regular way. i enter an address in the To: catagory (selecting to make it To:). then i hit send. i get a message saying that there is no address specified in the To: catagory. so i save the email as a draft and close the message i have just finished. i open the draft and it is all the same as when i saved it, except that the address i put as the To: address is not marked as a reply-to: address. i have to change it to a To: address and hit send for it to go out. so what i would say is the problem ( i know you did not ask for an opinion, but... ) is that in a new compose, the address line destination select is set to read all selections as Reply-To:, but this is not the case when it is a draft. i dont know if the draft peramiters are set differently, but they must be. i did use a build last week (dont know the #) that would not work with using the draft. then i had to save it and use netscape6 to send new messages. everything works though if i reply to or forward a message i have received. i hope this helps. i dont think i have the tech lingo to be more discriptive.
I don't see this bug at all, I can compose a e-mail and send it off fine putting something in the To: field
jimmy - in your Account Settings dialog (from the mail window, choose Edit | Account Settings), there is an item for "reply-to". Do you have an email address in this field? Thanks
mark worksforme until we hear from reporter to help us troubleshoot this further.
