#18463 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

wp_mail() does not allow"<address@tld.com>", regression

Reported by: kitchin Owned by: westi
Milestone: 3.3 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.2.1

This regression was caused by Ticket #17305: wp_mail() does not accommodate address format "Name <address@…>".

The format "<address@…>" no longer works, it has to be "address@…". In Ticket #17305 Comment 12 commenter Pavelevap says this is a regression.

I explained already in Ticket #17305 Comment 11 why the new regex is not optimal (greediness), and I provided a new regex:

patch was: '/(.+)\s?<(.+)>/'

should be: '/(.*)<(.+)>/'

I called it an enhancement, because the new regex would make "<address@…>" work without a "Name" in front. But it seems actually to fix a regression.

For belt-and-suspenders, trim() can be applied to the results, as it is now, though the call to AddAnAddress() actually does the trim() anyway.

I think we can probably remove the trims rather than adding more.
