View Full Version : OT: forum mess up threading...

Hello, sorry for being slightly OT but...

I think the web forum is messing up threading, at least for me in
Thunderbird (version 1.0.5 (20050711)).

To me, it seems like the Message-ID is the culprit...

Two posts from the same user, different topics & four minutes between posts,
have exactly the same Message-ID...

Am I the only one with this issue? Can it pretty please be fixed?!
Difficult to know if a thread continues embedded in another thread :/

Oh, it's not only me! I have seen this for quite some time. Always thought
it was my messing with my own mail server :-).

Thanks for bringing this up.

Happens to me, too, sometimes, at the web interface.

It makes it very hard to follow some threads when suddenly a posting from one thread parachutes into the middle of another.

Now, Michael, maybe *your* mail server is messing *us* up? :-)

C'mon! I've gone pretty low profile those past few weeks. Impossible that
my two mails a day messed up _your_ numerous mails ;-).

No problems, but I just hope there's someone 'up there' listening, or
just reading this very topic ;)

I fear the person in question left for a holiday... Let's keep this thread
alive. Or open a bug on bugs.slimdevices.com - there's a category for the
lists server.

I've always assumed ("never assume, it makes an...") that the issue
was in the mail client doing the posting, but it's just a guess...

And what if the sender's mail client was your forum software?

I vote that it should be filed with those who actually write the forum
software.

Oddly enough, I wasn't given the opportunity to vote for this bug.

I thought the email<->forum integration was a hack of slimdevices,
but maybe I was wrong? nyway, the forum is just PHP so it shouldn't
be a biggie to fix the Message-ID generation thingyding...
