I2P-Bote: missing public name

Parent Tickets: Sensitive: no

Description

Sometimes upon replying to a bote mail, in the userName+" wrote: " line there is no name even though the user sent us his public name. In order that to occur the user must not be in our addressbook.
Same happens for those users on 127.0.0.1:7657/i2pbote/folder.jsp?path=Sent in the "To:" column.

Is the replying bug reliably reproducible for you? Can you provide an example of it? I have tested repling to emails from users not in my addressbook, and on 0.2.10 I do see username + " wrote:".

The To: column in the sent mailbox is never going to have a name associated with it for users not in the address book. I2P-Bote strips out the names from sent emails, in order to keep local contact names private - see Email.removeRecipientNames(). Altering this to only do so for addresses in the local book would be more complicated, and would still leak information.

Migrated to https://github.com/i2p/i2p.i2p-bote/issues - I will close these tickets as things are resolved rather than right now, but please make future comments on GitHub?.
