I think I fumble fingered the above. What I meant was it's OK if your
MUA puts "Re: " in front of the subject, but it's not OK if it puts
"Re : " or "Re:" infront of the subject. I.e., subjects like

Subject: confirm <token>


Subject: Re: confirm <token>

or even

Subject: xyz: confirm <token>

will all work, but

Subject: Re:confirm <token>


Subject: Re : confirm <token>

will not work. This is because if the first 'word' of the subject is
not a recognized command, CommandRunner strips the first 'word' and
tries again, but it only does this once.
