            Bug ID: 2964
           Summary: Lack of escaping of nested double-quotes in To: header
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.9.1
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Other

Based on reading of info in the red box on
http://mailformat.dan.info/headers/from.html I decided to perform the following

1) Create a new email message to "Jesse "The Body" Ventura"
<your-real-email-address-here at domain.tld>

2) Observe that claws does not properly escape the nested double-quotes.

3) Email arrives with incorrectly displayed To: header.

If I manually escape the quotes, like this "Jesse \"The Body\" Ventura", then
the email is displayed properly.

I propose automatic escaping of nested double-quotes.
