    Rex,

    the other reagrding this problem was badly mangled (email adresses
    missing and such). Somewhere there is software involved that's much to
    clever for its own good.

    This is what I wrote, with email adresses obfuscated now:

    I stiil get all emails from the forum

    From: "JP Software Forums" <neil at jpsoft.com>"

    with a

    From: MLK <tc_support at jpsoft.com>
    Reply-To: tc_support at jpsoft.com

    Since my email reader (OE) is uncapable to create a rule for "reply to"
    or "From: MLK", all emails end up in an existing folder for Neil (neil
    at jpsoft.com).

    This is _very_ frustrating. I feel there was no need to change a system
    into which many of us had invested a lot of time to create rules to sort
    JP's forum emails into the appropriate folders.

    Mails before the change had e.g.

    From: Charles Dye <tc_support at jpsoft.com>
    Reply-To: tc_support at psoft.com

    "From: MLK" was missing

    Something went clearly wrong IMHO. Could you _please_ revert _soon_ to
    the old system, where readers like OE could sort your forum emails? Or
    install newsgroup access?

    Mit freundlichem Gruß,

    Klaus Meinhard

    Rex,

    the email problem is partly solved now. Instead of only one


    header each email now has ttwo:

    From: "JP Software Forums" <neil at jpsoft.com>
    Auto-Submitted: auto-generated
    Message-ID: <20080927213607.a5742b31970d at www.jpsoft.com>

    The second From: header seems to supercede the first and allows OE to
    sort the messages into their folders. I don't know how other readers
    will react to two different "From." headers.

    Thanks nonetheless, however, for the fix.

    Mit freundlichem Gruß,

    Klaus Meinhard

    This does not allow gmail to sort properly. Please fix properly, to
    generate well-formed emails (with a single from header).
    Paul.
