comments yes, but the basic content of the In-Reply-To: is supposed to be a
message-id. There isn't one being presented there.
And the message ID of the original message to which he was replying was
nowhere in the headers or body of his reply. If I were to be building a
threaded archive of a list to which there were WebTV subscribers I would
have to go in and manually correct the headers of all of their messages.
It might be possible to do it programmatically but it would require:
1. Check the WebTV user message headers for an IRT header to determine if
it is a reply or a new message to the list
2. Read the email address and date/time from the WebTV IRT header
3. Search the mail store (mbox probably) for a message that has a From:
header that matches the retrieved address and a Date header than matches
the retrieved date/time
4. Read the Message-ID header from that message
5. Rewrite the IRT header in the inbound WebTV message.
6. Pass the rewritten message to the archive mail store.
I think it would be easier to find a webmail setup that works with WebTV
and set it up then offer the WebTV user a local mail account for use with
the list. <grin>.
