Hi Jim

I do not know about where the English (US) and English (UK) languages differ in Mailman. But in school, half a century ago, I learnt (learned) about the differences in general. For example color / colour, center / centre, etc. 

And there are other expressions which are completely different in UK English and US English - see <https://www.indy100.com/article/25-english-words-that-mean-very-different-things-in-britain-and-america--b1tcKsqybb>. There are probably many more. 

So if you want to "unify" those two, which variant to choose? Or better blend them into one - changing the spelling from one occurence to the other?
