Description

17 years ago
Reproduction:
1. Make sure that <mozilla-mail-news@mozilla.org> is in none of your address books
2. New Msg
3. Type "mozilla-mail-news@mozilla.org" as recipient
4. Send (this will add the address to your Collected Addresses adress book, by
default)
5. New Msg
6. Type "mozilla" and let Autocomplete complete

Actual result:
A hit
"mozilla-mail-news" <mozilla-mail-news@mozilla.org>
is shown (and sent this way in the To: header, if you accept).

Expected result:
A hit
mozilla-mail-news@mozilla.org
is shown.

Additional Comments:
If you pull out the card in your Collected Addresses address book, there is (IMO
correctly) no name in that card, only the email address.

It is arguably, if this is a bug at all. I find this redundancy
- unpretty, if the UA shows both name and email address
- hiding a bit of information, if the UA doesn't show the email address (only
the name). (It will most likely show the email address, if no name if given.)
This case is more obvious for <chris@foo.com> (vs. <chris@bar.com>).
