This isn't really rcvstore's fault. AFAIUI, *all* the
sequence-manipulating nmh commands have the potential to screw this
up, it's just that you wouldn't often have a user manually causing
this kind of mutual update. rcvstore gets the bad rap only because it
Yes, I saw that in the code earlier. The sendmail model is to deliver
all mail in sync with it's delivery on the mail server. That is the
main reason I switched to a polling model with my scripts. I poll for
mail every couple of minutes, and when I manually request it. I have
some locking in my scripts, but with NFS that gets difficult.
We should still attempt to address this in nmh since it is a real
problem. A user could be running scripts that manipulate sequences as
the same time as reading mail.
