To quote from a manager of one of the mailing lists on a site I manage:
For some reason there has been a "feature"--stable through multiple
releases of Mailman--that is quite irritating.
Under some condition(s) message arrive with a newline character inserted
into the subject line. It may be as simple as a line of greater than a
The original message subject was fine, viz
Subject: [Mailman-Announce] Terri Oda's List Member Manual now available
When you forwarded it, it became
Subject: [UUA-List-owners] [Fwd: [Mailman-Announce] Terri Oda's List
Member\nManual now available]
(The \n shows the newline in a standard unix escapement.)
As far as I can determine, this does come from Mailman, as opposed to
being passed through or generated on my receipt. It's a minor nit, but
if there's an easy fix, I'd sure appreciate it.
There are some message archive hits related to this, including one
hinting that the fix is simple. I searched the sources (2.1.4), though,
and I could not find the relevant bits where this is modifiable.
