You can use message_header (more on this later), but many mail
readers are programmed to show only the basic from/to/subject
headers and thus your added headers may never be seen.
Bottom line: if you want to pander to novice users using less full
-featured mailers, go ahead and use subject_prefix and be aware of
the consequences. If you want to target your baseline for more
modern mailers such as Netscape, Eudora, and Outlook, just instruct
users to rely on the Sender field -- no sense adding other headers
that many won't be able to see anyway.
} What is "message_headers" for? Does it add an "Xheader=" in the email
} header, right there along with the "from:", "to:", "path" and everything
Yes, but it will add "Xheader" only if you write Xheader. It does
not transform your "foo" to "Xfoo". Whatever you type is it.
