Bug#732259: mutt: Special character in the recipient's display name overrides my name config'd in mutt

Suresh Ramasubramanian-2
Package: mutt
Version: 1.5.21-6.2+deb7u1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

[srs] Received a spam (attached) and tried to forward it with mime_forward set, also saw the same issue when I hit reply to the spam - to test if this still occured.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
     ineffective)?

Replying / fwding this email always overrides my header settings

   * What was the outcome of this action?

for a spam with » in the reply-to / from headers ..

 * What outcome did you expect instead?

Hello Suresh,

To make mutt respect your header settings you may just
want to

set reverse_name="no"

If reverse_name is set AND the email address in the spam
is one of your alternates, your replies will use the spam’s
setting. That may be why you haven’t noticed this behaviour
on mailing lists and other spam… :-)

Cheers,
C.M.
