Bug #35013 bad passing of header to get sender's email address
Submitted: 2005-10-29 03:46 UTC Modified: 2006-01-06 03:15 UTC

 [2005-10-29 03:46 UTC] php-louis at steelbytes dot com
when mail() is passing the headers to get the sender's email address and the headers are similar to the following:
  To: blah
  From: user@domain.tld
  AnotherHeader: value
it retrieves " user@domain.tld" as the senders email, instead of "user@domain.tld".  this is a problem when sending email to yahoo, as the MAIL FROM smtp command that mail() generates looks like the following:
  MAIL FROM:< user@domain.tld>
instead of 
  MAIL FROM:<user@domain.tld>
  MAIL FROM: <user@domain.tld>
and yahoo rejects.

Reproduce code:
mail('','test subject','test body','From: user@myserver.tld');

Expected result:
yahoo rejects with the following
  501 Syntax error in parameters or arguments

Actual result:

See bug #28038, this is just one more case related to that.

This should be fixed in CVS now.
