Subject: Re: Subject Fields
I suppose I wasn't clear (I know I wasn't). The reader I was referring
to is BBoard or identical, it is the same on at least 10 hosts I use,
and it has the same problem on most of the hosts the gripes are now
coming from. There appears to be no problem if messages are sent via
sndmsg, but Hermes and most other mail systems do not provide a
message that reflects a subject field in BBoard type readers.
So, no big deal. If your message provides a needed service, all
interested will seek out the subject; if you are requesting info,
your chances of a response are reduced.
No point in screaming.
