I'm trying to filter out the Re: in front of mails and am getting
problems. The following recipie wont work:
At least for Usenet messages, the only thing you're supposed to add to
the Subject line in a followup are the exact "four characters 'Re: '",
case being significant as far as I can tell.
Of course, there are a lot of software for plastic computers written
by the likes of the Redmond illitterates which doesn't conform to this
convention, but I'd start worrying about the broken cases when I
encounter them. (Two variations I recall offhand are "RE> " and "RE:".
I believe newer versions of Microsoft Internet Mail will have been
fixed, but don't count on it :-)
