A lot of people have mentioned the digestified version of -questions. That, plus a UMA that can dedigestify and sort messages (VM will do that) is one possible solution to the problem. Another is to read the messages as a newsgroup. Most newsreaders thread these days, so you should get sorted messages out of that. It doesn't necessarily work well for answering questions because of the missing Cc: headers. <mike -- Mike Meyer <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> http://www.mired.org/consulting.html Independent WWW/Perforce/FreeBSD/Unix consultant, email for more information.
