After a message is posted, it is distributed to all users subscribed in the FEED mode.
The To header field of a distributed message contains the mailing list address. The From, Date, and Message-ID fields (and specified additional fields) are copied from the original posting.
The body of the distributed message is a copy of the original message body. If the original message was not in the MIME format, or if it was in the MIME text/plain or multipart/mixed format (the most common formats), the FEED Mode Header text is inserted before and the FEED Mode Trailer text is inserted after the body of the original posting.
Subject Prefix: This setting specifies the string that is inserted into the beginning of the Subject field of all messages distributed in the FEED mode. When a message is distributed, the system checks the Subject field. If the subject prefix found after the reply prefix (Re:, Re>, etc.), then the subject prefix is deleted. The Subject Prefix string can contain special symbol combinations.
insert after Reply Prefix: Select this option to insert the Subject Prefix after the Reply prefix (this helps client mailers to group related messages into discussion threads).
Direct Replies: If the to List option is selected, the Reply-To header field with the E-mail address of the list is added to all distributed messages. As a result, when subscribers answer to distributed messages, their replies are directed to the mailing list by default. If the to Sender option is selected, the Reply-To header is inserted with the From address of the message author (sender).
Header: This setting specifies the text to be included in the beginning of messages distributed in the FEED mode. The Header string can contain special symbol combinations.
Trailer: This setting specifies the text to be included at the end of messages distributed in the FEED mode. The Trailer string can contain special symbol combinations.
