Re: Minor Contacts Bug Fixed; Major Contacts Bug Remains
- You are misunderstanding what I've written.
In 0.3.1, a nickname like "mom" resolved correctly even when the
character string "mom" appeared in the left hand portion of a
different contact's e-mail address. Beginning in 0.4.0 and continuing
in 0.5.0, such nicknames failed to resolve correctly; an error box was
displayed. The nickname could not be used; the auto complete screen
for "mom" had to be used to select explicitly the "mom" nickname
address. This problem was discussed in this group extensively as the
"mom" problem. 0.6.0 fixed this failure to resolve such nicknames.
The larger problem is still with us. Nicknames and categories/lists
resolve correctly behind the scenes and mails are sent correctly, but
the confirmation screen does not list the resolved addresses. Try
sending an e-mail to a nickname and another address--the confirmation
screen will only list the explicit addressee, not the nicknamed one.
This bug was reported on 0.3.1 and has never been addressed.
