When i receive email with many recipients, only one name is displayed in reply
form. It seems to be caused by Names with special characters such as ć in
Additional testing revealed that this was caused by a long recipient list with
many addresses that were encoded with iso-8859-2; the Address string is decoded
in one operation rather than each name by its own, this leads to the problem.
The fixed version will try to decode each address individually.
Created an attachment (id=7900) [details]
0.9.5.3 prerelease 31
This version fixed the issue for at least one user. All ADdresses are decoded
individually from now on which should lead to generally better results with
emails that have lots of recipients (Recipients may use different encodings in
their Email clients).
Another user who reported the same problem (only first name in CC list was
output by the %cc% variable) said that prerelease 31 resolved the issue.
Therefore, marking this as fixed.

Lets say, name is Jürgen Spaß, so firstname.lastname@example.org would be the email
address. In this case, following

I used 0.9.5.3 prerelease 31 for this test.
