FW.
« on: November 25, 2010, 09:49:25 PM »

My wife who helps a local charity in her spare time, does the village hall bookings and gets quite a few emails with 'FW' starting the email subject line.

I think it's to with 'Forward' (some thing I do Not use ), but these emails do not seem to be past on and they are normally inquiries  coming from the one person.

How does it end up starting the subject line ?

I'm only guessing. Could the person be receiving requests and rather than send her own email hitting the fw button? The full headers might tell you. I did a send to one of my addresses then fwded to another and they did

This is what I have been thinking, I tried it on my mail browser (Thunderbird) before I made the first post but it does not let you do that, so I was thinking this is something a windows computer does. :'(

Yes I am  .
I have just had another go at sending a test email to one of our address's (with a blank subject line) then 'foward' it on to another one of our address's .
It sent ok but it did not put 'FW' in the subject line as this is what I'm trying to find out where this FW is generated.

In both the sent and received subject lines I have "Fwd:".

Have you asked in Mozillanine forums? BTW You can post as a guest there
