[Bug 502022] Re: RFE: provide option to email displayed message to email address

This ability already exists. If the site is configured with
ARCHIVER_OBSCURES_EMAILADDRS = Yes (the default), the poster's obscured
email address is a mailto: link with the list posting address and
appropriate Subject= and In-Reply-To= fragments. Of course, it is up to
the MUA that handles the mailto: to understand these.

The other issue is that archive threading is by archive index period, so
if the archive is indexed by month, a reply in January to a December
post will be indexed in January and (in pipermail at least) can't be
threaded to the December thread.

For your second use-case, you can use the same mailto: link to reply,
and if your non-member post arrives in the same index period and is
accepted, it will be threaded with the post you replied to. Is there
some other reason why you would want an archived post to be mailed to

Archiving will be enhanced in MM3, and we will keep this request in
