Description Stian Jordet (reporter) 2009-12-29 02:14:12 UTC
SOFTWARE VERSION: 1.2009.42-11
(Settings > General > About product)

EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM: 
(Explain in detail what you do (e.g. tap on OK) and what you see (e.g. message
Connection Failed appears))
1. Send an email to an address not already in the address book

EXPECTED OUTCOME:
No contact created without my consent

ACTUAL OUTCOME:
New contact, with email-address created. 

REPRODUCIBILITY:
(always, less than 1/10, 5/10, 9/10) Always

EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:
None

OTHER COMMENTS:
(Not sure if this should have been contacts product...)

I can't see any reason that all my email correspondance are resulting in new
contact entries. This messes up my address book big time, I reply to quite a
few mailing list posts, and have no interest whatsoever in having those
addresses stored. It's just as useful as if every number I call is
automatically stored as a contact.

If someone like this behaviour, pretty-please at least make it configurable...
:)
