Hey sauceykat (and the world in general),
I did some research on the X-UIDL: XfS"!oP##!FQ[!!(&>!! thing.
This is what I found. Itís basically quotes from forums that I found and Iíve included the URLs in case you have the time to read each article in full, although, at least for me, this wasnít very helpful.
I quoted everything and abandoned the idea of paraphrasing what I read because despite the fact that doing Computer Studies right now, Iím unfamiliar with all of this extremely technical mumbo-jumbo, and I donít want to misinform you.
It is a unique identifier used by pop3. If you see a UID header it means the mail has gone through a pop3 server at some point. This is how your mail client knows which mails it has seen and which are new when you leave mail on the server.
I also read somewhere that the ĎXí in X-UIDL means that itís unstandardized.
Despite all of this, I still have no idea what the characters XfS"!oP##!FQ[!!(&>!! mean (if they mean anything).
Hope it helps.
