Thanks, That's a great idea.  It seems pretty clear that others don't want
the subject line lengthened so I'm dropping the whole idea.

Just turn on the "TO" field in Outlook.  That way you can see that the
messages are not sent directly to you.  This column is not displayed by
default.

  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.

  Jonathan

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

  ant-user@jakarta.apache.org
  ant-dev@jakarta.apache.org
  jakarta-ant-cvs@apache.org

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

  Subject:  subject line

  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
  time.

  Anyone know who to contact?  Thanks!  :-)
