    Can email subject headers like this one (below) be avoided? They screw up threading.

    That's what one gets for adding those ridiculous [FOO] prefixes. :)

    Anyway, non-broken email clients should thread on the References:
    header, NOT on the Subject field, unless there's no other information
    available.

    It'd be nice if the "to" header was the list rather than me, as well.
    It's a cosmetic thing, as I'm filtering on the from field, but it's
    odd not seeing "To: list_name" in my client. After all, it's a list
    message, not a personal one.

    That cannot be changed either.

    The only thing I can change is the "from" address (to make everything
    come from the same address) -- but that would make it hard to determine
    from which forum the message had been sent.

    gmail threads these just fine; perhaps you could set up an address for
    these messages. At work I am now using Outlook but am very happy to
    get jp email through gmail, especially now that nntp is gone
