locked Re: Special messages


 

Mark,

- Special messages can only be created through posting through the
website and checking the special box
By design yes. But someone once discovered that it was possible to include the correct X- header (copied from a special notice you received) as the first line of an email message (or in the header if your email client allows you to add custom fields) to cause a message posted by email to go out as a special notice. I don't know if that "hack" still works. You should probably ignore it, or else come up with a more user-friendly implementation.

- If a person is on digest, the special message is included in the
digest
And also sent to that person as an individual message. That was an improvement made in the last couple of years, originally members on digest would see it only in the digest.

And of course, the special notice posts to the message archive.
