This bug has been fixed in SVN.

If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on pear.php.net
by the end of next Sunday (CET).

If this was a problem with the pear.php.net website, the change should
be live shortly.

Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release.

Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.

Oops, I should read that much more carefully.

Alright, I'm confused - where's the explicit bit?

An individual may have several mailboxes and wish to receive
mail at whatever mailbox is convenient for the sender to
access. This standard does not provide a means of specifying
"any member of" a list of mailboxes.

A set of individuals may wish to receive mail as a single unit
(i.e., a distribution list). The <group> construct permits
specification of such a list. Recipient mailboxes are speci-
fied within the bracketed part (":" - ";"). A copy of the
transmitted message is to be sent to each mailbox listed.
This standard does not permit recursive specification of
groups within groups.

While a list must be named, it is not required that the con-
tents of the list be included. In this case, the <address>
serves only as an indication of group distribution and would
appear in the form:


Some mail services may provide a group-list distribution
facility, accepting a single mailbox reference, expanding it
to the full distribution list, and relaying the mail to the
list's members. This standard provides no additional syntax
for indicating such a service. Using the <group> address
alternative, while listing one mailbox in it, can mean either
that the mailbox reference will be expanded to a list or that
there is a group with one member.
