Threads falling apart - Ruby

Hi folks, recently my NR often fails to put news threads together. Is it just my NR or is there still something wrong with the News <-> Mail gateway? I guess, connected with this are header lines that look like this (just an excerpt) Date: Fri, 21 Nov 2003 01:48:25 +0900 From: [email]dblackwobblini.net[/email] Subject: Re: learning the "Ruby way" <Pine.LNX.4.44.0311201150530.4491-100000ool-4355dfae.dyn.optonline.net> <Pine.LNX.4.44.0311201137580.4435-100000ool-4355dfae.dyn.optonline.net> X-ML-Name: ruby-talk X-Mail-Count: 85850 Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; cht=US-ASCII Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7BIT X-rubymirror: yes Message-ID: <BOCdnQRLEo3lbSGiRVn-jAaugust.net> The subject like looks a bit odd to me, especially the <Pine...> items are unlikely to belong there.

    Default Threads falling apart


    Hi folks,

    recently my NR often fails to put news threads together. Is it just my NR
    or is there still something wrong with the News <-> Mail gateway?

    I guess, connected with this are header lines that look like this (just an
    excerpt)

    Probably a problem with the gateway

    See the newline after Message-Id: and In-Reply-To:

    Right. The format is valid but presents an edge case.

    <From [url]http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2822.html[/url] >
    2.1.1. Line Length Limits
    Each line of characters MUST be no more than 998 characters,
    and SHOULD be no more than 78 characters, excluding the CRLF.
    </>

    Message id's can be long and can't wrap, so the mail agent raising
    the problem has given the best possible chance of avoiding a
    "disastrous wrap" by starting with a CRLF.

    Meanwhile everyone else's mail/news agents are flouting the
    recommendations by sending lines of more than 78 characters
    without a care in the world.

    IMHO they're lucky that email isn't transmitted on punch cards.


    Herr Oelkers will look into it :-)
