Every server is in fact sort of a robot. That includes regular mail servers.
> Also, empricially we can say that it doesn't work well today because
too many MUAs don't do it right. I often get two copies of the mails
right after I post myself indicating that lots of members of this list have
> MUAs without a "reply to list" button, bit only a reply-all that
duplicates the mails to the previous sender.
> We also often see interrupted threads where you can deduce that we
missed a part of the conversation. That is presumably because people
just hit reply-to.
Much worse are the people using email clients that do not send proper
in-reply-to headers and therefore break the tree view for users using
more advanced clients!
