Great, thanks Steve and Kathy. I sent Kathy a couple of experimental emails to see if simply removing the colon or using a dash would help retain it. Thanks.

Thanks,

Hi Andrew –

I did not remove it.  It must have automatically stripped it out.  I am using Outlook.  I will watch out for this in the future.

Subject: Question about email clients and "CFC" in the message subject

Do some people’s email clients remove the "CFC:” when replying?

It looks like in the replies from Kathy, Steve, Jason, and some others that the CFC: gets stripped and I’m wondering where that is removed manually or automatically?

If it is automatic, we will deal with it but it is a bit of a pain because then the messages don’t sort together. If people are removing the CFC: I suggest that you can save yourself a few seconds of time and please leave the CFC indication intact… Thanks!

Thanks,
AWK
