True, but you did not follow mail lists customs. You should have quoted the original message, or part of it, so that we could see the context, specially as it is a message from a year and a half ago. That way we could have seen inmediately that you were indeed replying to an old post.

It is also customary to put your email address in the form:

"somebody name" <somebody@somehost.somedomain>

Then the reply header above would have been:

On date somebody wrote

instead of the mail address. This is not that important, but it scores in some automated spam testers, and we also know how to address you in our posts ;-)

I quote below the original email that you were replying to:

Honeycomb). I would like to print to by openSuSE server in the same manner I do from iOS. Anybody found a good solution?

I have found PrintBot, but that isn't a solution because it cannot be used legally where confidentiality is required.
(data is transferred to a 3rd party server before printing). I need to find a direct print solution. What says the

I found that post following the "In-Reply-To" header. Took me a while, though, using grepmail.
