Mailer problems

Please remember that the libertas-dev list does not accept HTML mail,
and it does not accept replies from broken mailers which break threading
by omitting the References: headers which RFC2822 says you should have.

You should make sure that you have HTML mail disabled when posting to
the list (in fact, just disabling it in general is best). You should
also read and attempt to conform to
the other guidelines there.

The level of traffic on this particular list is low enough that if we
_really_ have to, we could get away with disabling the check on the
threading breakage. It's not ideal, but it wouldn't be so unworkable. A
while ago, I suggested that if Marvell is _really_ unable to conform to
basic mail standards, I could do that. I seem to recall that someone was
going consult with your IT folks and get back to me about that -- but
you haven't done so, and you're still using broken software.

Please, either fix your broken software or use something non-broken.
Failing that, tell me that you are unable to conform to the RFCs and
I'll put in a workaround for it as I suggested before.

Please _don't_ just keep posting messages to the list that it doesn't
accept, and ignoring the rejections.
