Make them locks then..

The one that causes the most hate, discontent and blue air, is the one 
for sent mail, which gets changed to any configured mail folder, and 
which may be a week to notice it, at which point when you run out of air 
swearing about it, means you have to go to that folder and find all the 
sent mail and put it back in the sent-mail folder. What really upset me 
is the one time it decided to put the sent-mail in the spam folder, 
because I have another script that feeds all that to sa-learn -spam and 
then deletes it, so those sent mails are gone forever.

Thanks Mike.
