Auto BCC to multiple addresses separated by ';' creates a malformed BCC header
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; es-ES; rv:1.9.2) Gecko/20100115 Firefox/3.6 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; es-AR; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20100111 Thunderbird/3.0.1 Hello, When you create an Acccount and set the auto BCC feature with multiple addresses separated by a semicolon ';' the compose window show a malformed header adding a " (double quote) character before the @ symbol to the first email adddress. NOTE: If you separate the addresses with ',' (comma) the feature works fine; that is, adding a new BCC field for each address. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. In account manager, set you account to send automatic BCC copies to 2 or more email accounts, separating each address with a ';' semicolon. 2. Compose a new email message. 3. Look at the field of BCC's addresess. Actual Results: While composing a new message, you will see that the first field for BCC's is malformed. What you get is something like : BCC: user1"@domain.com; firstname.lastname@example.org Note the " (double quote) before de @ symbol. If you set more than two addresses you will see something like: BCC: user1"@domain.com; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com If you set in account manager the addresses with mixed semicolons or commas like: firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com You get: BCC: user1"@domain.com; firstname.lastname@example.org BCC: user3"@otherdomain.com; email@example.com Another example: firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com BCC: user1"@domain.com; firstname.lastname@example.org BCC: email@example.com BCC: firstname.lastname@example.org Expected Results: A single field for each BCC address or a single field for all addresses. A workaround is adding your BCC addresses separated by commas instead of semicolons. The use of semicolon is as common as using a comma.
I can't tell if this is a bug in the Account Manager, or in the Message Compose Window. For that matter, it might even be in MailNews as a whole, not just TB. Whichever, I was able to confirm easily on Vista (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20100111 Lightning/1.0b1 Thunderbird/3.0.1 ThunderBrowse/184.108.40.206 ID:20100111101938).
