I can certainly understand this concern; but it's a policy of mine _not_ to change subject headers, because that's how I keep track of which threads I've read and am interested in. This is especially vital when a thread is sporadically replied to over long periods of time. Even months or a year later some wandering message will come in with a subject line I recognise: and I'm happy that the header hadn't changed, because it's probably something I wanted to see. If you reply to me using a new subject header a week or so after my original message; chances are pretty good I'll miss it, cos I'm looking for the original subject line. By the way, I do like the new subject line! ;) Padraic. ===== Ne savem rhen cong quen dormises l' Etang; mays ieo savem que ne dormises rhen di solèz. -- per tradicièn Ewrnor .
