The script is smart enough to be able to figure out that an emtpy message is Nt and turn it on automatically (signatures not counting, so you can leave that on). Its not smart enough to try and figure it out in a message that has text.

And as for why it matters, its a database integrity thing. I find the database a lot easier to manage when things like posts are marked properly. Stories are way easier to find (especially since they pop up onthe sotryboard now), when they're marked, and nt messages are easier to filter out and count in access when they're actually marked as Nt messages.

It also saves the script some work when replying to an nt message thats flagged properly, since it doesn't bother generating reply text (for people who have that turned on).

Really, this is not a lot to ask for, especially for someone who has Tag1.
