No, no. Not at all.

I am cursed with a RIM Blackberry mobile email device that is (apart
from invasive, socially debilitating, addictive, relationship
destroying and too large to use as a mobile phone) completely
inappropriate for mailing list use.

It posts in HTML even though there is absolutely no formatting functionality.

It doesn't respect email threads and "In-Reply-To" headers (Is that
even RFC standard?)

Worst of all when you hit "Reply" to an email it puts the cursor at
the top of the email and the previous quoted content isn't editable.

The only solution is to copy the whole message and start again - it's crazy.

So my comment was to excuse my lack of proper quoting, not dig at
yours. IMO you quote correctly :)

(apart from possibly trimming down un-needed chaff from the previous mail)

Yes, I don't use Wine for much anymore. When we used to use Lotus
Notes it was very handy then, and there is still no competent Visio
plugin. Dia might be OK in a few years.. it doesn't cut it at the

Both work fine under Wine
