I'm closing this bug. The addtoseq function couldn't have worked since April 1999, when the code base migrated to CVS, and there hasn't been any other interest in fixing it. I removed the remaining #ifdef LBL and addtoseq code relics, commit 567646c8da4264d87bb75332789cb457cd105a42.

Sigh, I tried really hard to make this work ... but I realized that inc really needs to be rototilled. This would have only make it work for one type of maildrop, and we currently support three different ones. And inc is where the bulk of this code takes place. So I'm going to have to defer this code until later.

Here are a new set of patches versus nmh-1.2 and this time using diff -u instead of diff -c (?!?!) Also included are updates for mh-format.man and some unrelated fixes to prototypes.h.

(file #11648)

This is more likely to be applied if you (a) provide a unified (diff -u) format patch and (b) include patches to the documentation...

This feature was first added to the LBL version of mh in 1989.

The patches remove the LBL ifdef's and make the changes necessary for addtoseq to work with inc and scan.

I've been running 1.0.4 with these changes for a couple of weeks now with no issues.
