Hi,
I hope you won't ban me Wink , as this is already my third bug report / feature request in 4 days, but since I'm extensively testing the mailing-list handling of FUDforum, I came up with something else that would improve it even more.

Basically when importing ML mails I see that the subject line in the forum always contains the ML tag that mailing lists usually include (for example [Mageia-discuss] ).

I think in the forum index the subject lines would be easier to read if that ML tag was filtered out. This could probably be easily implemented by adding an extra field in the ML Admin page that would allow the admin to input the ML tag to be filtered out of the subject line for the specific ML.

My only doubt is if this will break threads once a post entered on the forum is posted back to the ML. I don't think it will, as AFAIK it's not the subject line that is used to keep a thread but other header entries, but I wanted to mention this concern anyway.

Any thoughts on this are very welcome! Smile

Just to follow up on my concern. I tested stripping out the forum tag manually from a reply to a ML post on the forum and the reply email kept the thread structure nicely even on the ML, so my concern is unfounded and this feature should not have any side effects.
