This is not intended to weigh in on whether [SOCNET] should be added
(manually or automatically) to our subject headings. But I thought it might
be helpful to point out that many email clients are capable of displaying a
To: field in the inbox list, enabling you to tell at a glance which of your
inbound messages were sent to listservs.

In Outlook Express, if you can't already see the To: field, go to
Tools|Columns and turn on the To: column. (you may have to shorten some
other columns to fit everything)
