Hi Florian, all,

just recently I discovered how to avoid new threads when you want to reply to an existing mail without having subscribed before:

Sorry for starting a new thread, but I could not reply to the last mail,
because I signed up later...

You'll have to follow three steps:

1) Find out the message number of the mail you want to reply to.

The most easy way is to have a look at the headers:

You mail, Florian, contains this Return-Path:

The number in this path is the mail number.

2) Send a single mail request to the mailserver.

This is easily to be done by sending an empty mail to

(for your mail it would be )

3) Reply to the mail you receive (which should be the original mail).

As reply to the original message your reply will be positioned in the thread at the right place.

I don't know if this works even without being subscribed (in my eyes it should work nevertheless), but for subscribed people it works.

If this might be helpful for others too, it could be added to the wiki and written in a way applicable to all the LibreOffice lists.

Therefore I CC'd the website list (should be the right place for follow-ups) - perhaps someone is interested in doing this...

Best regards
