STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
In Modest, select a mail by somebody who is not yet in your address book
(ccontacts). Reply to this mail.
Sender of the original mail is added to contacts only if a respective
(currently non-existent) checkbox is selected in Modest. User has the choice to
not have Modest add new entries to the contact list.
New entry is always added, Modest doesn't offer a checkbox to influence this
"Checkbox" in Modest could well be some other way of tweaking the client's
behavior, like config files or GConf setting.
It's important to control this as soon as you start actually *using* the
contacts as such. You'll want to control what's in there, you'll want to avoid

how annoying is this! it even adds all of the cc names so contacts ends up full
Thunderbird has a feature where automatically added addresses can be added to a
separate address book (e.g. called "Collected addresses"), which the user can
periodically prune if they wish, or drag addresses into their main address
book. I don't know if Modest supports multiple address books, or some other
feature that could be used to separate automatically added addresses, e.g.
This has been fixed in package

Thanks for reporting this as fixed, Andre. I searched git.maemo.org to see if I
could find the changes relevant to this, which appear to be:
(correct me if I'm wrong), which looks like a new tickbox has been added to
control whether addresses are automatically added to the addressbook or not.

If this has been fixed in package
which is part of the internal build version 2009.50-7, why is it still present
in the released build 2.2009.51-1?
This fix didn't go to the "2." release branch, so not in 2.2009.51-1; it should
appear in a subsequent update.

I still get this behaviour in 3.2010.02-8 and according to comment #11 the fix
should be included in the version after 2.2009-51. If fix still exists inside
Nokia only please consider setting bugs to fixed with the version the fix was
actually included in (like with all other software development), or you will
continue to get comments like this one.
It's not in 3.2010.02-8 as it was a minor update. The PR1.2 update (really the
next one) will include it.
Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the
fix will be available to users).
Sorry for the bugmail noise (you can filter on this message).
