as for exact address, I'm wondering if there're people out there
which actually use it (as it's non-default).
As someone may not even know what this is all about: if 'mutt -v' shows
+EXACT_ADDRESS, mutt will output the sender's address exactly as given
in the 'From:' header (hence the name). For most cases where 'Name
<address>' syntax is used this doesn't really matter. But there're other
cases like the older 'address (Name)' version (I only know old slrn
versions to generate this) and maybe more (like when RfC2822-invalid
headers are used, mutt now tries to parse it and may fail while with
this feature, it would just report what it got).
BTW I wonder what is the nature of the stated brokenness?
IIRC the first brokenness is that mutt doesn't strip the newline at the
end of the From: header. The extra linebreak would appear in the pager
as well as in the attribution with some expando. IIRC I tried to fix it
but failed by far since according to the commit which added the note to
the INSTALL file:
it may be complex to fix it. So the question is also whether there's
somebody out there who is willing to fix it...
