#19 Single quotes in address/subject not escaped in mail reply


AUC misbehaves if the user attempts to reply to mail from an address having the following form:

"Benjy's mailer" <benjy@remove_spamtrap.indiansprings.org>

The presence of the single quote causes the "To:" field to be blank on the compose reply screen.

If both the sender's address line and the subject line contain a single quote, the reply compose window only shows a blank "To:" textbox and message area. The "Cc:" and "Subject:" fields are missing from the page display (Linux Netscape 4.73), but make a partial showing in the page source.

There may be some other special characters which need to be escaped, but I did not test for those.

[I apologise for not tracking this down more fully, but I am heading into another test block and the crunch is starting.]
