 I use Pegasus on a windoze box and simply filter
classiccmp mail into a folder. I don't know how this affects
email on other systems but surely it is possible to filter
based on the to or reply lines. It seems to add another
not really needed element to the whole process and even
as it is now, long subject lines are often unreadable.
 If it does impact some system's functioning I would
grudgingly put up with it. I find new improvements almost
always cause new problems.
