Version 1.25: Now using bbs.msg_number (absolute) rather than bbs.smb_curmsg...

Version 1.25: Now using bbs.msg_number (absolute) rather than bbs.smb_curmsg (index) to retrieve a message header for the purpose of getting the author's initials when quoting a message.  bbs.msg_number is always correct when replying to messages in all situations (such as the Read Message prompt, scanning for new messages, and scanning for new messages to you).

If you use Digital Distortion message Lister, this version of SlyEdit requires version 1.34 of Digital Distortion Message Lister, which was updated to provide the correct message number to this verison of SlyEdit.
