Hi John,

I looked through the mailing list archive and git history
but didn't find an answer to the question:

Q: Why is it
      X-OfflineIMAP-random-stuff: more random stuff
   instead of
      X-OfflineIMAP: random-stuff + more random stuff

One of the mail servers I have to use is Exchange
(Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 IMAP4rev1 server version 6.5.7638.1),
and I'm concerned about the issue which used to be described in
BTW, where did the issue tracker go?

Would you accept a patch to change the X-OfflineIMAP header format
or was there an issue with some IMAP servers which required
the current X-OfflineIMAP header format?

However, in the -d imap debug log I found that the APPEND command returns
the new UID value, so the X-OfflineIMAP header isn't actually used
(UID SEARCH is never executed), thus I can't really test it...

Best Regards
