Reflector format

Neil-2
It is a pity that the present format of the reflector does not allow a
person to mouse click on a
particular post so that one does not have to scroll thru spots that may
not be of interest. Other
reflector formats allow this. Perhaps an update is needed?

Re: Reflector format

Neil,
    I regularly delete posts whose titles do not interest me and click to
open those which do.   This is no hard task and I do not receive the digest
so post comes through all day.

    Thankfully the forum does not require a pass word such as use to be the
case on Yahoo.   Eric does a pretty good job of keeping us in order and
sometimes I too have had my horns cut off.

    The forum works and we have the principals of Elecraft in the muck with
us.

                Peace and 73 Doug EI2CN

I've been doing that for almost thirty years, originally with PMMail,
then (and now) with Thunderbird. First, incoming mail is sorted into
separate folders, one for each reflector that I read. Then it's easy and
fast to read and delete (or keep) them. Even Yahoo's Windows interface
makes it easy to do this too.

Neil,

If you receive the individual emails using a good email client running
on your computer, you can do just as you requested.  Unfortunately, it
does not work that way for the digest nor if you are reading via webmail.

My email client has a filter set to move all incoming email with
"[Elecraft]" in the subject line to a folder that I have named
"Elecraft" - that way I do not have all those posts in my main Inbox.
I can open the Elecraft folder and read or delete individual emails
and/or respond to those I wish to reply to.  In other words, I have my
own version of a "digest" in that folder that I can handle like any
other email I receive.

73,
Don W3FPR

Check your settings to see if your mail delivery is in digest format.

Unfortunately, mail list software is good at aggregating messages but once
aggregated it's hard to unscramble the egg at the receiving end.   If you
are in individual message delivery, your client can do a satisfactory job
for you at the cost of some extra upfront work setting things up.

That's a really weird comment.  Almost all mail readers and webmail
clients list incoming messages in a nice orderly fashion with full
visibility into the subject line.  What more do you want?  Are you
trying to do that on a digest?

Both Google Mail and the webmail client of my ISP work fine for that. 
There is a checkbox next to each email  ... you double click the email
itself if you want to read it, or you single click the box to mark if
for delete if you don't.

I really don't see what the issue here is.  Unless he's talking about
the digest, and in that case he's trying to defeat the purpose of the
digest ... which is to aggregate all posts into a single one.

I do the same, sort on reflector, then things become simple...  If your
email client allows sorting, sort on the sender...

Jim,
I also use Thunderbird!  :)

The Nabble archive optionally sorts posts by topic mode. Click on the topic and
it expands all the posts in the thread.

See

for links to both mail-archive and nabble.

I believe with Outlook, you can drag the contents of a MIME digest email
into a folder.

Although there isn't anything native, for this, in Thunderbird, there
appears to be at least one add-on (undigestify) that will do most of
this.  A quick skim suggest that it expands to the current folder, so
you may have to do an extra move.

Except for a bug that doubles Re: in the subject line, you can pull out
individual messages even with bare bones Thunderbird, and reply to them
with correct threading.

Outed! Tried to make it work for my own small biz, but I spent more time
doing that than doing biz. NT there I came, much happier ever since.

I B 1 2......    OS/2 is what Windows could have been but failed because
of lack of support.

In the last few years that I was with the Feds in the early 1990s I had
two computers on my desk - the Uncle's Win3 box and my OS/2 box -
interconnected via a switch box in lieu of a KVM device.  I would do my
work on the OS/2 machine and sneaker-net it on 3-1/2" floppies to the
Win machine for storage or transmission - this was long before the
current paranoia about using personal equipment for agency work.  My
machine had an effective anti-virus, the Uncle's machine did not!  I had
the same sort of setup in my private practice               office with
an NT machine up until OS/2 became too difficult to administer.

Memories......
