Bug#620825: bacula-director-common: wrong email From address

Package: bacula-director-common
Version: 5.0.2-2.2+b1
Severity: minor
Tags: upstream patch
Blocked-By: 519567

Hi there!

By default, Bacula sends email with the following originator address
'From: (Bacula) <root@localhost>' (for the domain part see #519567).
AFAIK this is wrong, but i could not find any RFC dictating it.
Nevertheless, this causes Gnus/Emacs, Icedove/Thunberbird and RoundCube
to show it as "From: (Bacula)".  FYI, Evolution shows it as "From:
<root@localhost.$DOMAIN>" and Mutt simply as "From: Bacula".

I guess you would like to have it showed as "From: Bacula", for which
you need to correct it to 'From: <root@localhost> (Bacula)' (like other
system-wide services do, e.g. cron or debbugs).

However, please note that I could not get any email generated from bsmtp
with the correct 'From: <root@localhost> (Bacula)', using either one of
the following forms:

  -f \"\<%r\> \(Bacula\)\"
  -f \"\<%r\>\ \(Bacula\)\"
  -f \"\<root@sha.pca.it\> \(Bacula\)\"
  -f \"\<root\> \(Bacula\)\"

Simply removing the less-than and greater-than signs does the trick.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
