Re: Follow up 'v' flag

v = verses

In outlook via POP I can set followup -> dates (today, tomorrow etc) ... whereas in IMAP this changes to followup -> flag.

Was wonderign wether its possible to do it as per Outlook POP style rather than what it does at the moment which is just mark the message.

looks like a DNS lookup failed on yours ... so either you DNS is nackered or (more likely) the reciprient server DNS lookups are nackered (you'd see it with all mails if it was yours I think).

so basically go though them all from your 4.4.x to 5.2 b356 excluding builds 352/353/354/355.
