Loadstone mailing list changes

Greetings Monty and list,

Personally I find the list name at the beginning of the subject line 
extremely useful.  Like most, I receive lots of spam, hence if I don't 
recognize a name or subject the note is gone without ever being opened.  So 
if someone newly subscribes to the list and chooses a subject line such as: 
"east bound trouble" their note aint getting read.  I suppose the cure is to 
filter this list into its own directory, but I will miss the list name being 
appended to the subject line and since I don't want to filter relatively low 
traffic lists will likely not read a number of future posts as a result of 
these changes.

Take care.

Hello All,

It has been brought to my attention that certain aspects of the way the
mailing list is configured conflicts with optomum conditions for the list
to be efficiently used by subscribers using some PDA's and mobile phones.

To attempt to improve the experience for these subscribers, I have made
some configuration alterations to the list.  Hopefully most of these
changes will not affect most users but if there is a problem please let me

In an effort to help ensure an entire subject line fits on to some E-mail
client's  mail index, I have removed the "[Loadstone]" from the subject
line of list messages.  If you are using a E-mail role or filter to
redirect list traffic please alter your rule to key on incoming messages
containing the list address: "loadstone at loadstone-gps.com".

If this does end up hindering more than helping, please let me know!

Best regards,

Loadstone mailing list
