For some reason, Professional's (aka Sean's) posts consistently thread
wrong (if B is a followup to A and Professional's post is a followup to
B, it appears as a followup to A instead). Another Eudora bug?
Very curious. I just checked my most recent reply (prior to this one),
which was in the "copy of all mails to one user" thread, and the
In-Reply-To: is correct there as well.
FWIW, Eudora includes thread references, but isn't itself a threaded MUA:
message tracking within the app is by subject in a simple linear mailbox view.
What else is used for threading?
MS mailers include a "Thread-index:" header. I don't know of any other
mailer that sets that or uses it.
References: might be used. I find it mildly irritating when people use a
reply to a different thread to start a new discussion, but all these old
references come along for the ride, when in fact they've got nothing to do
with the tangent.
