You may already be assuming this, but in looking at folders, I not only need to see a summary by sender, date and subject, but I need to be able to sort the folder summary by any of these three criteria. Each sort needs some special handling.
  • "Subject:" needs to handle occurences of "Re: " and "Fwd: " so that threads group toggether.
  • "From:" needs to handle addresses with and without angle brackets, since the same address may have multiple forms
  • "Date:", of course, need to handle different time zones.
It's also useful to be able to see if I've replied and/or forwarded the message.

The "out" or "sent" folder, of course, shows "To:" instead of "From:", so there is the added problem of sorting multiple recipient lists. I'd like to be able to see the same email summary header under each of the recipients, but only when I sort the summary based on "To:".

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
