Re: [Evolution] Disable header changing in IMAP?

So Evo keeps an internal version/database of the mail as well?  What
happens when the message is removed from the mail server while evo is
creating this internal version?

what, you mean in the whole millionth of a second that it takes to add a
header to an already parsed message?

besides, if the message gets deleted *and* expunged, then evolution will
remove it from disk as well as remove it from the message-list shown to
the user. same as if the suer had deleted/expunged the message.

  Since a copy has to be made, the message id will change.

no it won't.

Again, this does not happen with evo closed, only running.  No I'm not
using filters in Evo for my IMAP account (I have one inplace for a pop
account, but there is no spam filter on it).

well, evo isn't uploading the mesages with an X-Evolution-Source header.
I can assure you. If you don't believe me, take a look at the message
sources via another mailer. they won't have that header.

As an aside, can we not create fake headers when viewing message
source?  When someone wants to see the real email source, show them
that, not an altered version that doesn't really exist.  Bad enough
tracking an email down though a spammers tricks, now my client doesn
them too :/

they are used for filtering purposes as well as hints for deciding which
acount to default the composer to when replying, so no. well, unless you
can come up with a better idea :-)
