Hurray for open source!

In 2001, I filed a bug for the Evolution email client because one of the email filter actions, “forward to email address,” didn’t work. Today, 8 years later, it got fixed. I don’t even remember exactly what I was trying to do, but I seem to recall others telling me to “just do it with procmail.” I know that if Apple Mail or Outlook was missing this feature there wouldn’t be a bug database to lodge the problem in the first place, but I also suspect that Mail or Outlook wouldn’t have overlooked such an obvious feature in the first place. That’s the open source conundrum for you.

Thanks to Milan Crha for finally closing it out.
