Thanks for the suggestion of automatically sending the ant messages to an
ant folder.  I could do this (Outlook 98 has this capability) but then I
wouldn't be able to screen the messages as they come in.  I would have to
constantly go to the ant folder and see if there are new messages.

It seems like a basic, simple, considerate practice to have the mail list
server prefix the subject with [ant-user].  Every other mailing list I am on
prefixes their subject lines, there should be no reason (at least in my mind
:-) why this one can't as well.

Thanks again for the suggestions.  I assume there is someone at Apache that
could turn this feature on.  I'd just like to know who it is.

Does your mailer not have the ability to filter messages?  If it does, just
pipe everything coming from

(in both the to: and cc: lines)  into a separate folder.  I do that, and
I'm sure most other poeple do as well.

Where is the appropriate place to request that all ant messages have an
[ant-user] prefix in the subject line?  It is *very* *very* annoying to me
that I cannot easily distinguish ant-user mailing list messages from my
personal messages.  I have ignored or deleted messages that were important
to me because I thought they were ant messages that I couldn't read at the

Anyone know who to contact?  Thanks!  :-)
