Threading buys my alot when I'm reading mail. With the amount of
traffic in debian-* recently, being able to follow discussions in
threaded order is a huge benefit for understanding what is going on.
As such, -I- find it a particular deficit that your mailer, PMMail 98
Professional (2.01.1600) for Windows NT (4.0.1381;3), does not add a
References: or a In-Reply-To: header, which would allow threading to
Every message from you begins a new thread, making it hard, if not
impossible, to reasonably follow conversations that you are
participating in. Yours is one of the few mailers that doesn't add
-something- to facilitate automated threading.
Elsewhere, you said you were looking for a mailer that is able to
handle multiple folders and tell you all of which have new mail. I use
exmh. Right now, I have over 60 folders managed by exmh, 6 of which
currently contain new mail. I find the benefits of multiple folders,
and the ability to receive new mail in any of them, invaluble, and exmh
suits my needs beautifully.
I agree, there is lack of decent support for IMAP in MUA's. I use
fetchmail (which is cabable of dealing with multiple remote inboxes
itself) to get mail from my IMAP mailbox and have it sorted into the
appropriate mail folders, but I can't take advantage of remote mail
folders with my setup.
