For all of us, saving these would be appropriate, right.

Ah, and thinking a bit more on this, let's agree on that whenever we 
unexpectedly mail each other we'll put the magic letters 'DMD' at the 
beginning of the Subject!

"DMD Wow, I loved your last post about arrays of references to indirect 
addresses of AAs sorted by bovine dung!"

This way the post will pass my junk-mail filter, "and that's not all!" 
It'll get priority treatment when visually browsing through the new headers.

DMD here stands for Digital Mars D language, not for the DMD compiler as 
opposed to GDC or whatever. (Do I really have to spell this out?)

At first I had a reasonable heading to this post, but then I got the 
idea that we'll need to do this every 6 to 12 months anyway, so a stupid 
but unforgettable heading would be apropriate, so, the first guy after 
the "6 months" ought to create a new thread with the same heading. (And 
even forgetting this particular header, simply searching for single-word 
all-caps headers gets you a long way.)

Thunderbird has had this feature since v1.0 at least. If you just click the column heading in the top left it will group messages into navigable tree structures that indicate exactly the reply order. Outlook has the same option called, IIRC, "Conversation View". HTH Max

Not quite the same, since it doesn't include messages that *you* have sent (at least, not for mail; it obviously does for newsgroups). -- Daniel -- int getRandomNumber() { return 4; // chosen by fair dice roll. // guaranteed to be random. } http://xkcd.com/ v2sw5+8Yhw5ln4+5pr6OFPma8u6+7Lw4Tm6+7l6+7D i28a2Xs3MSr2e4/6+7t4TNSMb6HTOp5en5g6RAHCP http://hackerkey.com/

It does, but first you have to move your own messages to the same folder.

Thanks - the reason for not using the web interface is because I like everything in one 'instance'. I have 4 email addresses for various things right now, a bunch of newsgroups, plus I need a calendar application and some sort of unified contact manager. Otherwise I end up have a bunch of browser tabs open, all using a different web client, and a newsreader, and a calendar application, and a separate address book, etc. BTW - Anyone know how well Outlook 2007 handles newsgroups? The Outlook 2000 (which I have) doesn't do newsgroups intrinsically (I know, it's MS but I can justify the cost in about 1 week of normal usage - pretty good ROI). Thanks, - Dave

Like its predecessors, Outlook 2007 has no support for newsgroups :). When I have to use Outlook, I add newsgroup support with http://www.mapilab.com/outlook/nntp/, but it dosent have anything like the polish of a true newsgroup reader, unfortunately... Max

In my experience it does a better job then other programs. But some spam messages still get though. It also sometimes spamifies messages that are legit. Particularly if you write something like "Hay Jim, we haven't spoken for a while. What have u been up to?".
