Forums Letters to the COW Team Suggestion for Cow emails

  • Suggestion for Cow emails

    I have recently begun a serious retooling of my email system due to data overload, and and attempt at multiple system confusion elimination. In the effort to get more organized, and also with cooler organization tools available to email clients (like Gmail, but I am now trying out Thunderbird 3 for it’s IMAP stuff) I was wondering if it was possible to remove the person’s name from the Creative Cow subject line. Most thread sorters that I have seen/used will only track a whole thread if the subject is exactly the same. With the name of the poster in the subject line, the thread views don’t work, it will group together just that one persons responses as the subject will be the same if the person responds more than once to a particular thread. Hope that makes sense.

    Not a big deal, but thought I’d throw it out there. I understand the way it is now, and it’s a good system, just trying to keep up with these new tools and crazy times.

    Happy Holidaze

    I guess you were too lazy to read the thread and went for the first post only, eh?

    [florin stanciu] “resistance is futile…”

    Unless you need to dissipate power, in which case a resistor is just what you need to cause resistance to said power. Take from what what you may.
