I sent an email to my friend, and got responses from him and from another person. Here is the email with headers that I sent (copied from my sent box - I've starred out part of his email address for his privacy, his address is not at netscape): ================ Message-ID: <3B462476.firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Fri, 06 Jul 2001 13:49:58 -0700 From: Jan Carpenter <email@example.com> Organization: Netscape Communications User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.2) Gecko/20010705 Netscape6/6.1 X-Accept-Language: en-us MIME-Version: 1.0 To: Deepsky the Magnificent <deepsky@netw**.***> Subject: ?

My best guess is that this is a security bug, so please reassign it if it isn't. Thanks!
From what ckritzer told me, it sounds like typing 'deep' in the To field autocompleted to email@example.com even though Jan has 'deep' as an entry in her address book. Reassigning to Address Book.

But I didn't have "deep" in my addressbook at the time. And firstname.lastname@example.org wasn't on the email that was sent... Is it possible that this was a fluke problem with the mail system, and not a bug of the browser?
Yes, I think that's entirely possible. If it doesn't happen again then I'm inclined to call it a fluke of the mail server.
reassigning to racham.

Ninoschka, Can you try with couple of entries in your address book ? I think this is a WORKSFORME case.
