Ah, digest. That explains it. When you reply to a message, your reply automatically includes a pointer to the message you reply to. That way, everyone who receives your message and already has the one you replied to sees them grouped together as a "thread" or "conversation". That didn't happen in this case since you didn't reply directly to the original message - you either composed a new message or replied to the digest, and I don't have the digest because I'm not subscribed in digest mode.

Dirk's message showed up fine here, but again, I'm not subscribed in digest mode... -- Mark J. Reed <markjreed@...>
