They could have been more clear by pointing out exactly where there is
a tag in the raw message text I posted to the list.

1. It is not certain I'm running the official claws-mail source, I'm
using the Fedora 28 package.

2. There are bugs in code all the time. If claws-mail never had any
bugs, I would be inclined to trust that kind of statement.

3. Since nobody has pointed to a problem in the raw message, it
suggests there is a bug in the copy of claws-mail I'm running. If
somebody did point out the problem in the message, it could help
resolving the issue.

But they could point out the part of the raw message text that contains
the tag so we could have something to go on. Simply repeating "the code
doesn't do that" is not helpful in resolving the issue.
