hmm ...  Then I do not understand Brian Youmas's dilema.
I will contact him for clarification during the week.

I do not have any trouble with BSD license, although mailutils
was trying to stay clean except for the sieve implementation(Sam Roberts).

If no one else have any objections, its fine by me.  I would certainly
like to rewrite the BSD part of the code(vacation) in the long term future.

Sorry, wired crossed.

Yes.  from(1) and frm(1) they understand IMAP4, POP3 etc ...

If you intend to work heavily on inetutils make yourself an account on
savannah so we can enable cvs write.  Hopefully Jeff, can arrange this
since I usually(99%) screw things up and I have to call loic or jeff
to the rescue.
