User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; fr; rv:1.9.1.9) Gecko/20100315 Firefox/3.5.9 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Eudora 8.0b9 

When one has an email message on the screen and right clicks on an address in the header and selects "Copy email address", only the actual email address is put in the clipboard, which is not enough if one wants to copy to another message. I suggest that the full address in the header (e.g. "Name" <email@address>) be put into the clipboard. Without this we need multiple steps to transfer the full address to a new email message.

Thanks, Matt, I have been checking the Penelope bug list but not Thunderbird. I hope that "Assigned To: Nobody; OK to take it and work on it" means that someone will work on it, a major convenience for (unless I am mistaken) a very minor programming task. Best regards, John

Added an option, "penelope.copyFullAddresses" (defaulting to true) which governs what is copied to the clipboard when using the "Copy Email Address" menu item in message windows. When true you get name and email (Matt Dudziak <mdudziak@qualcomm.com>); when false just email (mdudziak@qualcomm.com). 

Fix will appear in the next release.

Hi Jeff,

Does this mean that I can have this function now by installing these three files? If so, how to do, I can't find the same directories in the Eudora 8.0b9 installation folder. Thanks and best regards, John

No, this means you would have to make a build of the Penelope extension yourself then install that build in Eudora. Unless you are set up to build, or plan to build Eudora / Penelope in the future you are best off waiting until the next release.

I added an extra capability to this: if you hold down the shift key while selecting the menu item it will do the opposite of the penelope.copyFullAddresses pref.

For those with initiative, this feature is added in the Penelope hg source code
depot: <http://hg.mozilla.org/penelope/rev/0fe5a49f074d> for the initial feature, and <http://hg.mozilla.org/penelope/rev/2ae4e677bd6d> for the Shift key modification.

Otherwise you'll have to wait until the next release, Eudora 8.0/Penelope 1.0.
