    Emails' sender fields show full name only, not username or title.


  • SockDev

    But my long name is

    Cyber-harinezumi; @accalia's queen

    So, where's the

    Cyber-harinezumi

    bit?

    Judging by your "From" column, it seems that my long-name non-exploit is somewhat successful... What do the semicolons do in the protocol?

    List multiple addresses. Think of a To: field in an email that looks like To: Cool Polish dude <maciejasjmj@what.thedailywtf.com>; B?????n guy <offbyone@what.thedailywtf.com>.

  • SockDev

    Of course! :headdesk:

    Still doesn't explain where the

    Cyber-harinezumi

    bit went though…

    Huh...

    BTW: Discourse errors don't go in Error'd. They're so common that we have a category "Bugs" specially for those.



  • Yeah, I'm not sure what email client that is, but I guess it just picked 3 names at random out of the 25 in that folder?

    It's not really a Discoerror though, more an oddity in the e-mail client ;)

    Actually, scratch that: it is a Discoerror according to my most recent definition.
    Helps to have a term for that sort of thing :smile:

  • It's Google Inbox, it displays sender names according to some algorithm I can't be bothered to find out for messages it considers 'Low Priority' if the Low Priority 'bundle' is collapsed.

    Inbox is actually kinda weird when you think about it.



  • Any sufficiently advanced algorithm is indistinguishable from random.
