Thanks for the discussion link. More confirmation it is a bug in Catalina macOS Mail. Unfortunately, their work around for forwarding isn’t a fix. One would have hoped that Apple would have fixed it in the last 8 months, but they haven’t. :-( Thanks, Rick > On Feb 24, 2021, at 2:08 PM, J.

Thanks for that background, Tom. If it *must* be s3 then either working with LC Ltd or crafting an open competing lib would be necessary. Open source competing libs are problematic on both sides, since the dev needs to replicate the effort and the company loses one more advantage to their
