ZF-10503: Zend_Mail::_filterName does not filter ':'

Issue Type: Bug Created: 2010-09-29T09:18:45.000+0000 Last Updated: 2010-12-06T03:31:37.000+0000 Status: Resolved Fix version(s): - Next Major Release ()

When an email is sent, ':' character is not allowed in the sender name as it is to represent a group (rfc2822).

this code:

<pre class="highlight">
$this->_mail = new Zend_Mail('UTF-8');
$this->_mail->setFrom("", "John:Doe");

will produce this header:

bq.From: John:Doe

And it is not correct.

I suggest to disallow ':' in _filterName

<pre class="highlight">

                       '<'  => '[',
                       '>'  => ']',

I got some really weird results without that patch when an user try to have a sender name with ':'. That is my first contribution to ZF and I hope it can help.
