Just a minor enhancement:


If you include the above line then clicking on it will setup the newsgroup
in Outlook Express and I believe in other News clients.

Makes for just a little less work.

Many people may have trouble adding the news group and this makes it much

Note: Normal use of OE requires you to download a huge number of groups on

This slows down all of OE a lot.

I maintain the list of newsgroups outside of OE (AGENT) and maintain my
current newsgroups as lines similar to the above for quick restart when

OE works much better with out a huge FOLDERS file.

Are they not still in the header prefixed by:

X-Reply-To: ------------------ at ----------------

Actually this is not too bad as those on the mailing list can find the
address if they wish to respond privately.

This line appears to NOT be included in the copy sent to gmane.

So it not too bad at all.

How about a diagram showing the interconnections of the mailing list and the
filters applied as messages pass between them.

Oh never mind, that would require graphics and HTML which is forbidden on
this list.


In place of just ignoring, how about a reply indicating where they can post
CoCo questions and thus gain membership by showing their CoCo knowledge.
