Yeah - here we go. Did you read this stuff from below? Well, you cited it.

not only. almost any mail client except the dreaded webmailers supports
threaded view! So you have your topic.
Just try it out, download thunderbird and have a look. Use kmail. Or
even just take outlook 98 (yes, it can do!) and sort by discussion theme
(it's tricky stuff, thou)!
Maybe that is also a reason to recall the old chant:
Please folks: start a new thread on the mailing list with a blank email.
Do **** not ***** reply to just about some post.
Your posting will go down the drain most liekly.
Then, if answering to any post, please press "answer all" - this 'll
keep the thread alive. You just change the topic in midst the discussion.
I agree on the things said for x-postings from webforum to list: if they
appear without realname - they will all likely go plonk with most the
people who do the oldtimer email stuffu.
the m0n0 list is kind of very susceptible to this stuff.
