thanks - I am certain that fedora is using Simon's patches...just not
I put in a bugzilla @ redhat (fedora) - we'll see.
For my house, it's meaningless. I already have 3 kids and I don't plan
on having any more, certainly not enough to make autosieve a priority.
At one of my clients though, it is significant and if fedora/RHEL
doesn't update, I'll use Simon's so thanks for the heads up.
I love this message base - got a lot of extremely accurate answers.
