Subject: [PATCH] Fix draft handling for git imap-send
git format-patch generates a thread by setting Message-ID: on the first
message and References: & In-Reply-To: on subsequent messages. git imap-send
allows this thread to be appended to the Mutt drafts folder, ready to review,
edit and send. Unfortunately, Mutt strips Message-ID: when retrieving
postponed messages, so the thread ends up broken. It also fails to add the
configured Fcc: header to recalled messages.
We preserve the thread structure by not stripping Message-ID: when weed=0,
i.e. on recalling a postponed message, and ensure an Fcc: is added when
sending postponed messages if fcc is configured and the header is not already
See for the context.
