I certainly have no problem with there being the ability to specify an address that is always Bcc'd on sent mail. I think that's a fine idea. I just think that saving local copies of sent mail directly is an important thing to do, and we should figure out the best way to support it correctly. Every mailer that I know of has some way to save local copies of sent mail, and I think most users will expect such a feature. An important thing to consider is that all of this locally saved sent mail should also be immediately incorporated into the database so that it can be immediately searched and displayed with it's relevant threads. jamie. -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
