Fix a bug that makes Pine not to give a warning if the Newsgroup header is present
Patch is available for version: pine 4.56 pine 4.58 pine 4.60 pine 4.61 pine 4.62 pine 4.63 pine 4.64
This patch fixes a bug in Pine which makes Pine not give a warning when a message that you receive through e-mail contains the Newsgroup header.
Under this circumstance Pine should check the Path header, but it does not. Some news clients create this header even if the message was not posted.
The problem that this could cause is that you may send a reply to a personal message directly to a newsgroup, which may or may not be desired.
When this patch is applied, Pine will check for extra headers, and if Pine does not find them, it will give you a warning, so that you can decide if you want to reply to the newsgroup or personally.
