    hi,

    is there a way to predict the order of messages served by dbMail? the
    message number seems to be allocated randomly each time you log in.

    it's like in a MySQL table, after you deleted some earlier rows without
    OPTIMIZE (http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/OPTIMIZE_TABLE.html), new rows
    tend to fill in those gaps instead of continuing at the bottom.

    cheers,

    will.

  2. dbMail does not seem to be RFC compliant in more than one way. Don't use it,
    complain if your ISP does. Orcon uses this damn thing for example, and it
    causing all sorts of problems - including some software crashing because it
    doesn't check the server responses thoroughly enough, and assume strict
    ordering.
