That is a disappointment, and I hope it is only temporary.
It means that for the time being we have to go on with the Pegasus mailer,
because of their shadow-subject option.
And that is something which can be done much more elegantly and user friendly
in claws-mail-linux with a user action.

The positive side of my experiments is that I now use Claws-mail wherever I can.
I am a convert.

Thanks for your windows explorations.
