Description Alex Z. 2007-12-17 00:14:37 UTC
If an email is sent from an account with a comma in the username, the "From" email header is malformed. It appears as:

From: <part of name before the comma>@localhost.localdomain, <part of name after the comma> <correct email>

So if a username is: "Foo, Bar" with email address it would be sent as from:

Foo@localhost.localdomain, Bar <>

Fixed in r30045; names with spaces now get quoted.
