Description Brendon Higgins 2022-01-24 18:01:59 UTC

To reproduce:
1. Compose email.
2. Add several recipients as "CC" lines.
3. Remove any of them by clicking the "X" button at the right of the edit field.

My result shows that the immediately following address, which moves up in the list, switches from a "CC" to a "To" address. It should stay in "CC". It doesn't seem to be related to what the removed address or the address immediately above is, but the behaviour does seem to be different for "BCC" and "Reply-To" options. Not sure what the pattern is, but I have also noticed that if you have a "To", then a "BCC", then a "CC", and remove the first ("To"), the "CC" at the bottom becomes "To" (i.e., the effect skips the BCC).

Affects version 5.18.1 (not an option in the drop-down); not sure about more recent versions.

I confirm it.
