Cluttered heading

Here is a header from one of the messages on the first of the EGroups Stamp
Mail List:
>From: "evan stickney" <estickney@h...>
>Date: Sat, 11 Mar 2000 16:07:05 EST
>X-Mailing-List: basicstamps@egroups.com
>Subject: [noparse][[/noparse]basicstamps] Re: Seeking Stepper sources
>MIME-Version: 1.0
>Content-Type: text/plain; format=flowed
>Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

Is it possible to remove some of the stuff before broadcasting the messages
to the list? Something like:

>From: "evan stickney" <estickney@h...>
>Date: Sat, 11 Mar 2000 16:07:05 EST
>Subject: [noparse][[/noparse]basicstamps] Re: Seeking Stepper sources

I don't think we need to be reminded of the EGroup's address 25 times for
each digest, nor do we need to see the MIME stuff either. We have done just
fine without the CLUTTER when the list was on the parallax server.

Just my 2 cents

    I don't know if it will help, but I was fooling around and noticed something
    today.

    If you go to www.egroups.com and "login" you can see what lists you
    subscribe to.

    Click on Modify Subscriptions
    You can change to digest mode but you can also have the e-mail converted to
    HTML or not. You can also select "Default" (maybe always text only). This
    would be great if it is true because we always have some folks posting HTML
    and then that ticks off everyone who can't read HTML mail easily. I'm not
    sure if Default means text or not?

    I guess you can't please everyone, including me! I'd like to see most of
    the header stuff removed from each individual post (I get the digest
    version). The Subject: line is buried in all the other junk, and hard to
    pick out when you're scrolling dowen the posts. Id like to see something
    like...


    ----Msg 015
    Subj: Blah-blah-blah-blah
    From: Mortimer Q. Public
    Date: 14 March 2000

    "Post goes here..."

    and so on.

    Just something for the wish-list.
