I did this in #223034#c61:

With KMail 5.2.3, the list can be created, but email cannot be sent. When
clicking on "Send", I get this warning popup:
"The email address you entered is not valid because it does not contain a '.'.
You will not create valid messages if you do not change your address."

The distribution list is not expanded, and therefore KMail thinks that the DL
name is an actual email address.

1. Create and populate a DL named "Family, Friends" (from KAddressBook)
2. Use the "Select..." button to add this DL in the "To:" field (from KMail)
3. Click on the "Send" button.

The popup will warn you (the above message) about the email address
"Family at mycomputername".

You are receiving this mail because:
You are the assignee for the bug.
