Comments inside an email address are not handled properly
|Reported by:||bca||Owned by:||alec|
Some people still uses From-headers of the somewhat old format "localpart@domain (John Doe)".
When you try to reply to such a message, Roundcube doesn't understand what message to put in the recipient field, so apparantly Roundcube fail to understand that the To-field contains a valid address.
These addresses are still valid according to RFC5322, as the following copy and paste of EBNF shows:
address -> mailbox -> addr-spec -> local-part "@" domain domain -> dot-atom -> [CFWS] dot-atom-text [CFWS] CFWS -> *([FWS] comment) (([FWS] comment) / FWS) comment -> "(" *([FWS] ccontent) [FWS] ")" ccontent -> ctext
