I'm using mailbox in Python 2.5.2 to filter incoming mail into separate mailboxes. I prefer mbox for various reasons and so I have used that format.
It would appear then when I do:-
dest = mailbox.mbox(destDir, factory=None) dest.add(m)
it sets both the access and modification times of the mbox to the date and time now. This is a disaster for MUAs that detect new mail by looking to see if the mbox has been modified after it was accessed.
Is this a known bug in mailbox.mbox.add(), or am I doing something wrong, or what?
