Hi Dimitrii,

I attach a patch that handles X-Label and Keywords as a space separated
list, following what is discussed in this thread


and what mu does. I went the easy route and assumes labels have no
spaces. This is documented on the sample offlineimap.conf.

Could you confirm that mutt will be happy with that? Right now this
patch assumes there is only one header for labels (either X-Label, or
X-Keywords or whatever). Is that ok or is it possible that a message
might have the labels spread in multiple X-Label headers?

You can get the code from github at
