;;; Commentary:

;; Bbdb-reportmail advises the reportmail package function
;; display-time-get-field so that it attempts to replace the reported
;; "from" and "to" fields with the name field (or mail-name, if it
;; exists) of the corresponding BBDB record, if such a correspondence
;; can be made.

;; To use this, simply add the following lines AFTER you load in your
;; bbdb, set bbdb variables, etc.
;;  (bbdb-insinuate-reportmail)
;; (A require used to be necessary - it is no longer needed as long as
;; bbdb-insinuate-reportmail is called)

;;; History:

;; v1.01 26 June 1997
;;       Fixed the advice so that if we are the message recipient, do
;;       nothing so that display-time-process-new-mail will correctly
;;       trap this case.
;; v1.00 26 June 1997
;;       Initial release.
