Subject: [Blind Casting] Re: Anyone having problems grouping by conversation thread?
Hi Don, couldn't agree with you more. While the threading is not working well for me as I explained in a message which Freelists sent to Jeff for approval, I really wish we could lose the name of the list in the subject of each and every message. And come to think of it, I actually think this would clear up the group by conversation problem Microsoft Outlook is having with this list, because I think it is where Freelists is placing the "re:" that breaks the conversation feature. It is still very easy to set up a filter that puts messages sent to blindcasting@xxxxxxxxxxxxx in a given folder, and ditching the annoying prefix thing makes for less unnecessary speech.

Jeff, It is working fine for me. However, I really despise the fact that so many lists such as this list the name of the list in the subject line.
Outlook Express still sorts the messages fine, but I just dislike having the list name in the subject line. It has been my experience that persons who insist on this like it because they do not have to set up filters in their mail programs. Just a personal preference of mine which I couldn't resist mentioning.
I had gotten a complaint from a user of the list stating that grouping by conversation within Outlook isn't working for them. Is anyone else seeing this problem? Have any of you who are on other freelists seen this problem and do you know of a resolution?
