Re: [Evolution] Threaded Message List View

What effect does Threaded Message List in the View menu have?
I couldn't tell the difference.

Yay Sent messages archive... :)

Hope the discussion below clears things up. I posted this a couple of
times already, to the (now deprecated) Ximian-Users list.

You can check the headers of a replied mail (for example this) and you
will see all the relevant headers:

Every mail has a Message-Id: header, which holds an ID that is very
likely unique (although it is not guaranteed to be unique).

When replying to a message, this Message-Id of the mail you are replying
to, is written to the In-Reply-To: header. Thus mailers can determine
which mail is the predecessor.

The References: header holds every Message-Id, that is/was set as
In-Reply-To: header. Therefore, threads can be displayed correctly, even
when the predecessor is missing (for example already deleted).

Of course, all this only applies to mailers that care about those
headers. There are some well-known mailers, that give a f**k about
In-Reply-To and References headers...

Now, done with the theory, to use threading in Evolution and display
threads nicely (extremely useful for mailing lists) just set this:

 [x] View / Threaded Message List

You will instantly see all mails in that folder threaded.

char *t="\10pse\0r\0dtu\0  ghno\x4e\xc8\x79\xf4\xab\x51\x8a\x10\xf4\xf4\xc4";
main(){ char h,m=h=*t++,*x=t+2*h,c,i,l=*x,s=0; for (i=0;i<l;i++){ i%8? c<<=1:
(c=*++x); c&128 && (s+=h); if (!(h>>=1)||!t[s+h]){ putchar(t[s]);h=m;s=0; }}}
