Package: maildirsync
Version: 1.1-1
Severity: important


I don't know really if I found a bug, but I tried to use maildirsync and
encountered the following problem:

for a file like:


the script copy the file to the target. But when the file is like:


the file is ignored. And also, for the files:


they are also ignored.

I looked the script and especially the line:

my ($message_id) = $path =~ m{.*/(\d+\..*?\.[[:alnum:]._-]+(?:[,=].*?)?)(?:

trying to modify it to accept the name of my files, but it's really complex 
to understand the code...

Have you any idea of a solution about this ?

Thanks a lot for you work and I apologize for the trouble I should cause.
