Subject Re: Subject lines prepended with "[AXIS-USERS] "

I disagree entirely, it's not redundant. The problem is that, the 
reply-to address is the list address and, the from address is set to 
whoever sent it. Because this problem generally only appears on 
mailing-lists, people dont want to have to add a column to their mail 
viewer (the reply-to field), just for a certain group of mailings. 
Furthermore, if the list name was prepended, the user is able to 
visually parse the source and therefore, what is normally in the domain 
of fancier mail programs now becomes possible to a larger number of 
client programs. Just because MS Outlook has filtering, dont expect 
every other mail-reader to as well.

Can we please add this to the list server.
