Is it just me, or did your Thunderbird just break threading of this topic
by not including any Reference Headers?


Well I suspect it was a combination of things... Apparently this group's mail list server will not accept messages that have or are formatted with html content. Even though I have configured Thunderbird to reply to and/or compose messages to this group (via a setting in the address book) with plain text, Thunderbird apparently has decided it will not honor that setting and sends it with html markup instead anywise. (by default) And I, being only a mere human, keep forgetting about that "feature", since most people and groups that I interact with don't mind receiving email with html content... Therefore, for this group, I have to try and remember to reformat email so it is in plain text, and when I don't (as was what happened in this case) eventually this groups server bounces my message or response back to me... Then I have to try and forward the bounced message back to the group, (cuz I am to lazy to recompose it from scratch) first reformatting it in plain text... So that is probably what caused the reference headers to disappear...

Someday perhaps... we will finally figure out how to design software so that it all works seamlessly together... Sigh... but as long as these sort of artificial hurdles and barriers are in play, I for one will make mistakes while trying to remember just what the rules are for each and every $!**# application (and mail list servers) I have to work with... double SIGH...

Marc...
