It is not a bug in Alpine. It is not a bug at all. It is an intentional
user configuration ('Reply Leadin' parameter). It is also not a
'Reply-To' header that somehow got lowered or dropped into the email
body by inadvertence or wrong-headed design.

Apparently, the 'In-Reply-To' string must educe some deficiency (or
confusion) in the Evolution software you use, however.

Maybe that lead-in violates some RFC, although you'd think what's in the
header's in the header and what ain't ain't and ne'er the twain shall
meet.

At any rate, bw threads fine here, so it must be you (or me).

much time while we sat in the machines correcting my grammar. He had
complimented me on how I spoke Italian, and we talked together very easily. One
day I had said that Italian seemed such an easy language to me that I could not
take a great interest in it; everything was so easy to say. "Ah, yes," the
major said. "Why, then, do you not take up the use of grammar?" - "Another Country"
