I was hoping that someone on this list could tell me where the "Status"
and "X-UIDL" headers are defined in the standards documents? Are these
defined or mentioned in an RFC somewhere, or do most POP servers just use
them? I realize the "X" in "X-UIDL" means it is *not* standard, but it
seems to be used in too many places to be that unstandardized. Also, I
was wondering if anyone can tell me to what extent Balsa makes use of
them. Does Balsa use these to determine if a message has been read?
I am looking to use these headers in a mail project I am working on, but
don't want to unless they are pretty reliable across implementations.
Thanks in advance for any help,
