Re: [vox-tech] noise problems

there have been emails that you've cc'd me that i had absolutely no idea who
you were sending the email to!  so i did some web surfing.  this link looks
good.  sven is the absolute god of editors and mail clients:


here are the highlights:

  ELM also uses an "attribution" to identify the sender of the original mail
  within the reply before the quoted text.  You set the attribution with the
  elmrc variable "attribution":

    # attribution string for replies ('%s' is the author of original message)
    attribution = Quoting %s:

  The parameter (field) "%s" stands for the name given in "From:" line of the
  original mail.

  Caveat: Using the "%s" more than once seems to produce strange results.
  Note: The parameter"%s" is the only parameter you can give.  (This is true up
  to version ELM2.4PL25).  However, there is a patch for ELM that add more
  parameters. The patch is simply named the "attribution patch".  A patch means
  that you have to apply it to the sources and install (compile etc) ELM yet
  again.  It may mean some work, but it is well worth it.
    Formatting parameters:
    %n Newline
    %t tab Parameters that refer to the information given by the original mail:
    %s From
    %F From
    %D Date
    %I Mesg-ID
    %S Subject
    %T To
