Piker.  My e-mail archives extend back to the 1970s, stored on 9-track mag tape
(with slight interruptions for job changes--learned that lesson after a while).
Oh, ;-)

On the subject line topic, I read this list via an Exchange/Outlook setup,
since it's job-related.  To reply, I "C-a C-x" and paste into an Emacs window
to edit and respond to points made, then "C-x h C-c C-x"[1] to put the result
into the clipboard and "C-v" it in the Outlook reply window.  Simple.  Quick.
Gives me time to think about what I'm going to say.


[1] Personalized key binding: Otherwise, M-x clipboard-kill-region, which is
    much less convenient. :-)
