Moving email changes "From " line

Postby officer » Mon Jul 04, 2011 8:08 pm

Version: 3.6.19

If you move an email to a mailbox of another user, then the "From " line will be changed.
After moving you will have the user name of the other mailbox whith your imap-server's
hostname as senders email address.
Also the date and time will be changed to the time of moving the email.

For example, if moving an email from your mailbox to a mailbox of user_2
the first line of the email will be changed
from:
From real_sender@foo.com Mon Jul 04 14:35:40 2011
to:
From user_2@imap_host.domain.tld Mon Jul 04 21:28:30 2011
< timestamp shows time of moving ! >
As a side effect the sort order is wrong.

Is this a behavior correct ?
I would have expected that the email will be unchanged.

Thank you !

The sorting problem will be fixed by upgrading to 3.7 I believe. The from address should be untouched. I can't reproduce this. Are you moving to a sent folder perhaps?
