For those benighted amongst us on the netiquette of using
mailing lists, the following link explains what top-posting
means - http://www.blakjak.demon.co.uk/gey_stv0.htm
Intuitively I have been a bottom poster. However I am
always leery of how my MUA formats and sends the
message. I use Outlook (not Express) and I would like
to take this opportunity to request those for whom
proper e-mail threading is important to tell me if
my posts are appearing the proper way in the proper
I have threading turned on and I find it useful.
I have observed consistently that Roberto's message
always starts a new conversation thread, even though
the subject line is the same. Is it just Outlook or
others also can make similar observations?
