Swiftmailer Recipient Name Has Parenthesis


Recommended Posts

SwiftMailer's function to set the recipient's email and name looks like this:

setTo(<address>, <name>);


This works dandy, unless a recipient has parenthesis (maybe other characters, but for my purpose is irrelevant).



John (Work)

John (Home)


In my use case, th data in parenthesis is important for the recipient to derive the intent of the email notification. SwiftMailer will truncate any data in parens leaving behind "John " in both scenarios. Esacaping the parens with a backslash John \(Work\) alleviates the parens replacement, but includes an automatic escaping of the escape lol: John \\(Work\\)


Reading into the headers sent with SM, there are several other headers that have parens in them, so I don't believe this is done for that purpose - but I could be wrong.


So my Q is two part:


Is there a way to send parens in the recipient's name? and is there a reason this is done at all?
