    I posted this earlier and got no response to my question so I'll try again.
    Maybe nobody has an answer or maybe it just got lost in the posts so here

    When I send a new email I have a problem. When I start to type a name in the
    to: field my address book pops up which is fine. I select the proper name
    and click and the address goes on the to: line. That part is fine. But, when
    I am sending the email to two people and begin to type the second name, the
    address book pops up and when I select the second name to put on the to:
    line, it puts that name on the senders list 4 or 5 extra times and I have to
    manually delete them. What is happening there? Is this happening to anyone
    else or does anyone have an answer for me? Thanks in advance.

    I get the same problem, so hopefully somehow it'll get flagged as a problem...

    Cheers, Ian

    Thanks for replying. It's always good to know it's not just me. Means there
    is a bug in there somewhere.

    I just tried what you described, and I see the same thing.

    Some things I saw:
    - No delimiters between the repeated addresses.
    - I went back to try it again, and it seemed fine.

    That was baffling, so I tried a bit more, and my theory is this:
    If you are adding another address using the address book AND there is more
    than one choice, you get your selection repeated.

    To me this sounds like a bug.
