SuSE tends to patch the same version # that was released on the CD's so
as not to break dependencies. So the .22 version that SuSE has in the
updates directory has been patched, but indeed 1.2.5i (1.2.5.1i was the
fix) and anything at mutt.org below .25 is vunerable. So in a sense the
person who suggested getting .27 wasn't wrong. Besides a quick
./configure --prefix=/usr and you have a new version over the old and it
has many bug fixes..since the 1.3.X series is a development series and
if one is going to run the development version..keeping up with bug
fixes is a good thing..other wise why leave the stable release of
1.2.5.X :)

That's a question to SuSE: why did the leave the stable 1.2.5 and
included development 1.3.22 in 7.3 ?
