Thank you for the kind words Randolfe. I think a lot of members don't  
know how to start new threads every time their reply veers off the  
parent subject. That is what causes thread name vs content confusion.  
So a reminder to all:

You make a NEW mail NOT reply to:


Make an address book entry for that address and use it when your  
reply is not really about the topic you see in the subject line  
please everyone.

with your TO THE POINT new string name for our OS X and Thunderbird  
Mail and PC Outlook clients to sort this stuff appropriately. Yahoo  
will take care of the group tag automatically adding it as all the  
copies are mailed out. This would help a great deal in keeping the  
Subject line relevant to content of posts. For example in all of the  
Katrina discussion, nobody took the time to make a NEW topic with the  
word "Katrina" in it. Until I got fed up with all the Katrina talk in  
topics like i/ON etc...

NOTE: you cannot delete a subject and change it's name - that will  
stay in the WRONG string. You MUST make a NEW send with the above  
address. NOT a reply even if you change the name. thank you in  
advance for your consideration.

In OS X Mail you can search for "compression" inside all the mail.  
But my point is if we each pay attention to our posts and keep to the  
subject listed. In fact I'll do it right now. I'm gonna copy all of  
this - what would have been a reply and PASTE it into a new string  
called "Mail Subject Format Technique".

So I am creating a new string from a reply to an outdated and  
irrelevant subject line while still retaining the last person's quote  
which led me to make this new string.
