PS. There's something wrong with Raymond's mailer that creates a thread in gmail whenever he responds. I suspect it's not correctly adding an In-reply-to header. That makes the thread feel much more disconnected than most, because often the quoted text is in a different thread.
His mails don't have any indication they're a reply at all - not even so much as a "Re: " in the Subject. Even Outlook Express isn't *that* broken; I suspect he's not actually using the 'reply' button in his mailer.
Raymond, I don;t know why everyone's talking about you as though you weren't reading the thread and able to answer questions. Though I *have* sometimes wondered why your posts lack attributions for the quotes.
I see from your headers you have, at least some of the time, been posting via gmane using "mirapoint webmail direct", whatever that is. Perhaps that's the problem?
