    Would the Emacs maintainers in principle be willing to consider the
    possibility of replacing the current dual mailalias-mailabbrev system

Yes, this fixes the reported problem, but it isn't general enough.

Completing mail abbrevs must only happen for strings after


Wondering when my .mailrc entries were transferred to
(define-abbrev-table 'mail-abbrevs '(...)) in  ~/.abbrev_defs; was this
