Re: SUBJECT ....


Whew! Thanks for that unequivocal reply.

There's nothing worse (in the world of mailing lists) that such a hideous sop to brain-dead mailers.

This makes me suspect that we're about due for the counterpart to the request for a [LIST-NAME] "Subject:" tag: having "Reply-To:" set by the list server.

Perhaps that one should be put to rest, right away, too?

Nope.  Absolutely no chance whatsoever.  Zero.  Nada.  Zilch.  No way.
Ain't going to happen.

There are any number of ways to filter on stuff in the header that don't
require adding the annoying subject prefixes.

In case it isn't clear, I don't like the subject prefixes...
