No, I mistyped it, it is MHonArc. 2.2.0
------------- What I want... :)
Let me explain it again :
I want to make something like the thing below in a *msg* page
In this example, I'm reading the hilited msg.
The bottom of this message should look like...
"This is a test" by person01
"Re: This is a test", from:person02
"Re: This is a test", from: person03
"Re: This is a test", from: person04
---> hilited "Re: This is a test", from: person05 <--- hilited
"Re: This is a test", from: person06
So I know what message I am looking at AND the reactions AND references.
(Actually, this should be in another frame.)
------------- Why I want this.
Because it is a better way to get an idea of a thread.
Without looking at other distracting thread/information.
(information overload and more buzz words.. :) )
------------- The problem.
Now, if I react to this message by typing "Re: This is a test",
the reaction will be listed in the THREAD page as possible f'up,
because I didn't use reply.
But the reaction will not be seen in the *msg* page that started
the thread and other reactions.
Why is the THREAD kind of "fuzzy", and are the *msg*pages not.
(e.g. they only list explixit refs and f'ups.)
*** Your solution
The partial threadlisting is not an option; it will also show
other not-related threads.
I like the possibilities of MHonarc,
but it takes more to develop a user-friendly system.
Like what I just wrote.

(based on the subject, not on the msg-id) in the
Thread listing, but not in the msg page ?
I tested it, and the reaction appeared in the threadlisting,
but not in the message that started the thread.
Are you refering to the reference/followup section after the
message body in the message page? Note, that section is only
for explicit references and follow-ups (ie. based on message-ids).
Note, the next/prev by thread are as you expect.
The subject detection is a "nicety" done by MHonArc. However,
by subject alone, it cannot be determined what message actual
is a direct follow-up to another (unless fancy heuristics were
To get what you desire, you can shut-off the FOLREFS resource (or keep
it if you want). Then rely on the next/prev thread links (maybe with
some customization), and/or use $TSLICE$ somewhere on the page. See
the same frame archive,
<URL:http://www.oac.uci.edu/indiv/ehood/tmp/frame/> and check the
bottom of each message page.
