True enough. It usually merely annoys me when replying to messages sent
some, probably MS, MUA that sends paragraphs as one long line. Its not
identifying itself, but it uses a message id of
hex_coded_string@another_hex_coded_string which should be rather
distinctive. I must remember to use it selectively to prevent line
wrapping.

....and reduce the meta score to compensate?

Has the Perl regex syntax changed since Perl4? If it has I think I need
to get another Perl book before venturing away from the simple subset
I'm comfortable with.

I'm thinking about reducing that back to the default. I initially set it
higher while finding out how to use SA.

Not entirely. Its enabled but I'm only using auto-learn with default
thresholds. However its probably not doing much at present because I
recently reset it by deleting the bayes database.

Yes, they are now scoring here too.

Nope, I'm not seeing that one.

Thanks for your input.
