Subject: Mail::Address is incompatible with chromatic
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 215b
chromatic spells his name with a lowercase 'c' unconditionally. When parsing e.g. 'chromatic <>' and extracting the name, Mail::Address returns "Chromatic", which is incorrectly capitalized.

Who is to blame: the module which tries to be too smart, or the person who doesn't want to follow the rules of his language? Anyway: nice joke. In ancient days, many people couldn't find the "shift"-key on the keyboard, but nowadays it is usually correctly used to type in personal names. People usually fill-in their name correctly, so no tricks are required. Instead of $addr->name use $addr->phrase||$addr->address That will respect chromatic's wish.
