Reporter/Name(from Bugbase): Stuart W. / ()

Created: 01/11/2019

Components: Net Protocols, MAIL

Versions: 2016

Failure Type: Incorrectly functioning

Found In Build/Fixed In Build: CF Version 2018.0.01.311402 / Adobe Driver 5.1.4 (Build 0001) /

Priority/Frequency: Normal / Some users will encounter

Locale/System: / Win 2016

Vote Count: 1

Coldfusion 2018 Standard - both in DEVELOPMENT and paid for versions
(2018 edition not an option in the version box on the Add Bug form, so had to use 2016)

Problem Description: When sending a <cfmail> the friendly "from name" field is converted to lower case when surrounded by parenthesis. 

Steps to Reproduce: Send a CFMAIL
<cfmail to="" from=" (Sender Name)" subject="test"></cfmail>

Actual Result: sender name

Expected Result: Sender Name

Any Workarounds: Change the structure of the from tag to from="Sender Name <>"



+1 - Confirmed CF2018 sends parenthesized text as lowercase within from="" and to="" attributes. Sending email from CF2016 and Outlook 365 preserves the casing.
