Rockbox mail archive

Subject: Re: RE : Off Subject: Mailing list modification request
From: for_spam_at_gmx.de
Date: 2003-04-18


personally, I would like it, if there is something like [rock..] in the
subject line.
since i don`t sort my mails automatically and they are all "flat" in the
incoming
folder, I just see "from" "subject" and "date" - so I have to open the mail
to see
that it is from the rockbox list.
I often read mail via webmail, and i also have no option there, to see, from
which
list a mail has been received.
