Summary0015358: Import does not strip doublequote text delimiters when using 'import emails with the same values for attributes'
DescriptionBy default Openoffice Calc uses the text delimter " when exporting CSV files. When importing to phplist it appears not to remove these which results in email addresses that look like: "" instead of just: The actual import itself goes fine but then later these doublequotes result in the addresses being regarded as invalid by phplist.

Line 407 of importcsv.php includes the code:

$line = str_replace('"', '', $line);

For whatever reason - i am not a competent enough coder to work out what's happening here - the code above either doesn't get called or does not have the intended effect.

As OpenOffice is a popular choice both for regular users and for those looking to convert xls files and export them as csv, i contend that this should just work without having to manually alter the text delimiter.

I have twice seen this effect. First when importing a large number of email addresses and then secondly through exporting a CSV file consisting of just two email addresses in an attempt to replicate the behaviour.

This appears consistent arcoss both 2.10.9 and 2.10.10.
