We are in the process of upgrading Zimbra 6 to Zimbra 7 and then to Zimbra 8.

Using a link to create a new Zimbra Compose Window using web URL, it appends %lt and %gt to the email address.

In Zimbra 6, we use following URL to compose a new Zimbra Mail:
https://domain.com/zimbra/mail?to=Some Name<someemail@domain.com>&nss=1&redirect=0&view=c ompose#1

This works fine. I see 'Some Name<someemail@domain.com>' in the To field of Zimbra Compose Window

When I try the same URL in Zimbra 7, I see 'someemail@domain.com&gt Some Name&lt' in the To field of Zimbra Compose Window. Since &gt is getting appended to the email address, it becomes incorrect email address.

Has anything change in Zimbra 7 to use URL to compose a new Zimbra Mail? How do I pass Some Name<someemail@domain.com>in the URL show that it is set in the To field?
