Re: [Evolution] RCPT TO response error.

  I came across something interesting regarding the problem we discussed
last week.  If I attempt to send out this exact message using SMTP, I
receive the error I previously described.  However, if I change the
transport to Sendmail, this message goes out just fine.
  Evolution behaves this way on my laptop with the latest snapshots
(no preview releases) with Red Hat 7.0.  I do not have these problems
on my other computer, where I run Red Hat 6.2.  I realize that suggests
quite a few differences in configurations, but perhaps this will help
you guys determine what's going on.  Also, the mail server is running
Microsoft Exchange.  Thanks.

Hiya guys,
 whenever I type an email to a few certain addresses, I always get
this funky error that I have not seen before.  The error looks like   

Error while 'Sending "Re: xxxXXXxxxx":  
RCPT TO response error: Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable:
mail not sent

  I figure there's something wrong with the library that processes
addresses, because if I change the address the problem goes away.
There doesn't seem to be any particular pattern to the errors, they
occur with standard user address com addresses, along with
first_name address-string str ing com etc.  The curios thing is that
Evolution does not exhibit this behaviour on another computer that
has a similar configuration.

Can you give me an example of a before-and-after you change the address?
Do you have commas in the wrong places, etc?


Doe, John <john doe com>

This is wrong, you'd need to use:

"Doe, John" <john doe com>

This is because commas are used to separate addresses and so in the first
example, it would think that "Doe" is a complete email address which is
obviously incorrect.

I'm just guessing here, this may not be what you are experiencing.

  Is this an outstanding bug, or could there be something wrong with
my libraries (snapshot vs preview mix)?  Does anyone know what library
I should check?  Do note that the error occurs when I attempt to send
the message, not while I'm typing in the address.
  A quick search on Goggle yielded one unanswered message from March
this year, so I'm not the only one who has seen this problem. :-)
Thank in advance.

This is all handled in Camel which is in the evolution package.

 Great work on Evolution btw.  This is by far the best Groupware suite
available. :-)
