For the, err, fanatics of TB like us who do keep all the messages, I totally agree with the mid: concept. However, I'm pretty sure (just guessing here) that the majority of the list subscribers do not keep all the messages, and that's where mid: fails. Now if we could just get the archive tweaked where mids could be gotten from there, then life would be good! <Grin> KC> When emailing someone's cell phone address I purposefully keep it KC> short and simple and eliminate extraneous things like my signature KC> line. Absolutely. I have special address book templates for recipients on cell phones and such so that all they get is my message (sans sig) or my reply (sans quotes and sig). And I agree with your comment on reading mailing lists using those devices. Even with my Palm Pilot m515, I don't synch any of my mailing lists. For one, there's too much volume, and two, it's not worth the hassle IMHO. -- Leif (TB list moderator and fellow end user).
