Thanks for your reply, I'll have a look at that.
I must admit however to being quite surprised at the reaction to my suggestion.
Compliments of the Season to everyone.

We actually tried that for a time a couple years ago, and there was quite a bit of resistance to it. My advice to you would be to create a filter to put messages from the list into a different folder for you. How you'd do that depends on your mail client/service of choice and is a bit beyond the scope of the list.

Subject: Message to JFW mods

Hello James,
First of all, thanks for the great job of moderating the list.
I wonder if it's possible to add JFW or similar as a prefix to the subject line of messages to enable grouping etc. This would make email reading much easier for those of us who have lots of emails to get through each day.
Compliments of the season to you all.

I appreciate that you're looking for people to fill your newest of many new mailing lists, but the JAWS list is hardly the place to be advertising for it. Let's try to restrict our posting to things that are actually considered on-topic for the list, please. This seems to be a biweekly reminder to folks on the list, and I don't really think it should need to be.
