New submission from Chris Jerdonek:

> Date: Thu, 13 Sep 2012 00:28:20 -0700
> To: docs at python.org
> Subject: [docs] Bug in documentation for mailbox module
> I think I may have found a minor bug in the documentation for the
> mailbox module, at:
> http://docs.python.org/library/mailbox.html
> Right at the beginning of section 18.4.2. ("Message objects"), when
> describing the mailbox.Message class, is the following:
> "A subclass of the email.Message module?s *Message*. Subclasses of
> mailbox.Message add mailbox-format-specific state and behavior."
> The word "Message" indicated above with asterisks is a hyperlink to:
> http://docs.python.org/library/mailbox.html#mailbox.Message
> I think it should instead link to:
> http://docs.python.org/library/email.message.html#email.message.Message
