Re: (Fwd) Re: new Semantic Web Interest Group (SWIG) home list, se

I don't understand. In order to properly automate the sorting
of your e-mail into different boxes you should use a good
mail tool such as the cross plaform thunderbird


or, or numerous others. You don't need to know anything
about RDF. Each e-mail is composed of long headers such as the
following, which are usually hidden to end users, but which a
good tool will make visible.

You can then create rules that will sort your mail based on
the content of those headers. Each mailing list usually has a
header that is very specific to all mails it sends out.

For example above you can create a rule that places your mail
into your SWIG mailbox if it contains the Forwarded by header
containing the string

Asking the group to prefix each mail title with a [SWIG:] is not
very reliable for the reasons you yourself noted, namely that
those letters can appear in mail from completely different groups.

Use the right tools. There are many available excellent ones
