Hmm, do other emails from other users get blocked?
I wonder if it's lack of DKIM (which gets invalidated by the
list sig vger appends) or something else...

Not really sure. My professional body's alias service now uses EveryCloud for its antispam. initially it also blocked your mails as 'spam', by the daily notification allows me to white list that. However the forwarded emails go to both home & work, and only the home ISP (cheap but annoying) then has no white list mechanism and no way of seeing what they binned.


On thing I did note on the web display of the threads is that it would be
good to have a leader of " . . . . . `" so that one can count the level of
indent, and see the alignments via the columns of dots.

When looking at
https://public-inbox.org/git/0648000B273C412AB7140AE959EBC99A%40PhilipOakley/
I had difficulty working out which email the last 4 were replying to.

So, right now, it's:

2016-07-20 21:10 ` [PATCH v4 8/8] doc: revisions - clarify reachability examples Philip Oakley

And you would rather see something like:

Not quite, something like:
2016-07-20 21:10 . . . . ` [PATCH v4 8/8] doc: revisions - clarify reachability examples Philip Oakley
2016-07-20 22:22       . . . . ` Junio C Hamano

I haven't filled in the last ones because there are no matching follow on replies, e.g to Junio' s 2016-06-25 19:49 message.
(I may not have put in enough of the lead either)
However for ease of formatting I guess that simply setting the indent to be '. ' rather than ' ' (both 2 chars) would create the impression of the messages being on an indent grid

If rather than looking at those below junio's reply, you try and look at which message he was replying to, it's very hard (It's more than a full screen scroll up), hance the request for the alignment 'column of dots'. I think he was replying to my 2016-06-25 13:50, but it's not easy to be sure.

?

Actually, my initial inclination was to use the '|' character
which is what mutt does

It should be doable, and the '`' immediately following the last
'|' probably ought to be a link to the parent, too.


I feel that the '¦' style chars will fill the screen too much (with '.' being the minimalist I can think of), but it's a personal choice.

I would also like to use '}' (as above) or '+' where mutt would
use "├─>" or just '├', but I don't think I can introduce multibyte
chars without causing problems for some users.

Anyways, it's definitely on my ever-growing todo list.


(Wow, it is refreshing to be a "web designer" who can live
entirely in a terminal without relying on screenshots :D)
