Incidentally, I know we thrashed this issue out on Common-Lisp@SU-AI
some months ago; and I remember initiating the discussion with a query
msg to find out how other people felt about the issue. However your
"References" field shows only the very cryptic:
I've noticed that this kind of encryption always occurs whe Symbolics
folks try to reference prior mail; it must be some kind of "feature"
in the Symbolics mailer?
Those message-IDs follow the Internet standard for mail and were
generated by the original sender, not by my reply. There is no
encryption going on. There is nothing Symbolics-specific going on. I
have no control over these IDs, except possibly for the ones on the
messages that I sent originally.
Could you possibly restore something more like the original dateline;
on these references, with at least (1) which mailing list to which
the msg was sent, (2) the "From" name, and (3) a readily understandable
date format [e.g. Wed, 14 Sep 88 16:27 EDT]. Thanks.
If you can't retrieve messages from mail archives by message-ID, you can
ask me to retrieve them for you. It may take me several weeks to get
around to doing it, though, if I don't already have the messages locally.
You use Unix, don't you? I'm surprised that it doesn't implement the
Internet standard for mail.
