Subject: MESSAGES OUT OF ORDER
You've probably just received a puzzling sequence of messages
>From me. They were delivered out of order. They got queued up
instead of forwarded when the ISI mail server was hurting, and
then got shipped out smallest first.
The correct order should be:
Subject: SRKB working group, Phase II <-- READ THIS ONE FIRST
Subject: special interest working groups within SRKB
Subject: SRKB subgroup: knowledge sharing for engineering modeling
Subject: a proposed format for portable ontologies
Subject: an example ontology
I had initiallly planned to send them as a multipart message
using the new internet mail standard (called MIME, which
guarantees proper sequencing and understands messages in
messages), but since so few mailers are compliant ... a
Well, you get what you pay for.
If your mailer can sort by sending date, that will put them back in order.
Sorry for the confusion.
