Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 168183
folder_hook push broken
Last modified: 2014-07-29 07:02:56 EDT
The currently only and recommended way to specify a default limit pattern
(message filter) is a folder_hook with a push command. Unfortunately this breaks
POP/IMAP authentication, because the hook is executed before login has succeeded
and the keyboard buffer is used by the password prompt. Example:
folder-hook . push "l!~D<enter>
This bug has already been fixed in upstream as of 2005-08-07. Unfortunately mutt
seems to have one of the most conservative release policies, because 1.5 is
still marked "development" while the last stable 1.4 release dates back more
than 19 months!
Well, I am about to setup a ticket asking for inclusion of mutt 1.5.x into
fedora core. Even the less progressive guys of debian fame are using a 1.5.9.
Most of the fixes applied to the 1.4.2 source tree inside the rpm are also
already included. May be we also do the transition to 1.5. Even if it is a
mutt-1.5 is in rawhide now.
