Ticket #108 (closed Bugs: fixed)
E-mail address entry field crashes on invalid name characters
|Reported by:||octo||Owned by:||octo|
Description (last modified by octo) (diff)
When attempting to compose a message to a recipient whose address contains a real name with certain characters, the EmailAddressBookEditField on the message composition screen throws an exception. This is a side-effect of how it was originally implemented (extending EmailAddressEditField), and not so easy to fix correctly.
For 1.0.x, this will be fixed using a workaround that only displays the raw E-Mail address for recipients with unsupported characters in their real name string.
For example, this issue can easily be reproduced by attempting to reply to a message from someone with the following From address:
"John Doe " <firstname.lastname@example.org>
