I know, I know - you don't like email :) But nevertheless: You seem to be using REBOL to send email (your mails do not contain an X-Mailer header, but an "X-REBOL: Link http://WWW.REBOL.COM" header). Now if you would add a very simple functionality to your mailing reblet, those of us using mail clients with threading functionality would really benefit. Your mailer does not send an "In-Reply-To" header in mails that are replies to other mails. There are clients that make use of this header to enable a nice, threaded view mode. Adding that header is rather easy: if you reply to message A just read the value of the Message-ID header of message A and use that exact value for the In-Reply-To header. Example follows. -- snip -- Message A: Message-ID: <[web-112615--compkarori--co--xy]> Message B, an reply to message A: In-Reply-To: <[web-112615--compkarori--co--xy]> -- snap -- Just a suggestion :) -- Best regards, Andreas mailto:[andreas--bolka--gmx--net]
