Fix a bug that makes Alpine not to give a warning if the Newsgroup header is present
Patch is available for version: alpine snapshot alpine 0.83 alpine 0.98 alpine 0.99 alpine 0.999 alpine 0.9999 alpine 0.99999 alpine 0.999999 alpine 1.99 alpine 1.999
 
This patch fixes a bug in Alpine which makes Alpine not give a warning when a message that you receive through e-mail contains the Newsgroup header.
 
Under this circumstance Alpine should check the Path header, but it does not. Some news clients create this header even if the message was not posted.
 
The problem that this could cause is that you may send a reply to a personal message directly to a newsgroup, which may or may not be desired.
 
When this patch is applied, Alpine will check for extra headers, and if Alpine does not find them, it will give you a warning, so that you can decide if you want to reply to the newsgroup or personally.
