83 - Mailing does not recognise "laralina-proudmoore" as "me" when sending mail

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Create a new mailing group.
2. Set the destination of the group to ${toon}-${realm} (eg: to laralina-proudmoore for Laralina on the Proudmoore server.)
3. Put something in a group, with that operation, which you have in your bags.
4. Mail that group from the interface.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

I see a stream of "you can't mail things to yourself" errors, which is probably better than if it actually did mail me my own stuff. :)

What version of the product are you using?

Mailing 2.1.5, and the rest up to date from Curse.

Do you have an error log of what happened?

No error log was generated.

Please provide any additional information below.

I imagine that something needs to either ambiguate the name you are sending to or, perhaps better, to disambiguate it so that you always compare the name-realm value. In my case this happened because I was playing on two realms and wanted to make sure I didn't send stuff to an incorrect player (eg: bankername-server2 when I meant bankername-server1, especially since I didn't own that name on the second server.)

It will probably show up some time for players on a merged realm however.

    Mailing should now properly handle targets with name + realm in them.
