FP8 issue: Sending of email no longer expands private groups

User creates a private group, for example 5 people in customer service.  Calls the group CS.   Contains Tom, Dick, Harry, Mary and Jane.  Prior to FP8 she sends email out to CS and the To: got expanded to all the recipients.  A recipient could to a "reply to all" and continue the conversation.  Upon installation of FP8 it no longer expands the group.  One of the recipients tries to do a 'reply to all' and gets an invalid address for CS.

According to IBM they will: "be creating an enhancement request for this issue so that the developers can review this for possible fix in future releases."

Hm. It's a bug, though.

Wonder why they'd mismark it for an enhancement: private groups are by design, not publicized to other people.

Consider what you'd reveal by creating a group, "Managers like Hitler". They're revealing private information to the world.

Workaround: Press F9 to expand the group

The workaround is to press F9 to expand the group before pressing send.

Code modification

We looked at the logic in F9 and implemented that automatically in the Send.

You can override it in delivery options
I like having it suppressed by default because of people who abuse reply-all.
