NT4, Build 4/7/99, Apprunner's Browswer window shows Build ID 1999040710 in the bottom right corner of the screen. Problem: Highlight a message in the Inbox, notice the Subject (i.e. Test), select the Message menu, select Move Message and choose a folder (i.e. FolderA). Go to FolderA and notice that the message is there but it now begins with an "Re:" so it actually displays "Re: Test". I tried switching to a different folder and switching back but the "Re:" remains. If I exit and restart Mail and switch to FolderA then the "Re:" no longer exists and the subject displays correctly, "Test". I reproduced this on Fenella's NT4.0 system. The same scenario in Win95 never displays a subject with an "Re:" so it appears to be an NT4.0 problem.
I'm going to reassign this to bienvenu, but there may not be a bug here. Could you look in 4.5 and make sure that the original message doesn't have a Re: in front of it before you move it. There were some status problems that David fixed earlier this week that required you to delete your .msf files. To do this, go into the directory that holds your mail folders. Look for the files that end in .msf and delete them. Then run again. I tried this and it isn't happening to me.
I looked at Ninoschka's machine and saw what was happening. Ignore my previous response. I think this is happening because we're not copying over all of the fields in the header when we do CopyMsgFromHdr. So, the date and flags are wrong. When you start up again and are actually reparsing the mailbox, everything looks ok.
the flags weren't getting copied over. Since the copy hdr code is just a place holder until mork implements some stuff, this isn't a big deal, so I wouldn't hold m4 for it.
