Discussion:
Prefix emails with [curl-users] or similar?

Most mailing lists automatically insert a prefix to help users identify
where the email comes from.

I think it would be nice if curl did this too. But it's also not a problem
if it doesn't happen :)

Thanks for curl!

Hi Steven,

I have my Thunderbird set up to filter on "To: curl-***@cool.haxx.se".
Pops them right over into my "curl" folder.

Do they? Some do, certainly. But surely the "standard method", is to
filter on the "List-Id:" header, and route each specific list's content to
a list-specific folder.

That's mostly true, it depends on the list admin(s) ;-).

The GMail crap does not make it easy to create a filter based on header
fields.

@Stephen please can you take a look into this support page and create a
filter for your needs.

https://support.google.com/mail/answer/7190

Have you tried to open the mail, press the small down arrow near by the
'to "the curl tool" test" test and klick on 'filter this list'

Then you should get a new window with something like
'list:(curl-***@cool.haxx.se)'.

I haven't tested this and just write it down from my head so please
don't blame me to hard if the wording is a little bit differnt ;-)

Hi Aleks,

As you have noted, Gmail is my dilemma. I will try and redo the filters,
thanks for the links! The best I could ever get Gmail to do was add a label
but it still goes to my inbox :(

Anyway, if I were in multiple curl lists I would prefer to send them to the
same folder. For example I'm on a couple of the python mailing lists, and
it's always clear which email is coming from where (in the hypothetical
case of my filters actually sending them to my python folder).

Python, CMake, LLVM, and PCL are the only mailing lists I've ever joined
besides curl and they all prefix so I assumed this was standard practice ;)

Thanks all for the responses, fingers crossed my new filters work!

-Stephen

If you redo the filter, there's an option to "Skip the Inbox (Archive it)"
