+ </question>
+ <answer>
+ <para>Very often, when you are subscribed to a mailing list, you will store each message from that list in a folder dedicated to that list. Depending on remote software solution and configuration, mailing lists tend to include some words in the Subject header to identify the messages, optionally accompanied with a message number, for instance <literal>[sylpheed:33101]</literal>. These additions do not provide useful info if you have organized your folders as described, but Sylpheed allows you to disable displaying the additions in summary, and/or, if you wish, delete the additions on reply.</para>
+ <para>To do that, right-click on a folder from the folder tree, and select <guimenuitem>Properties...</guimenuitem> In the <guilabel>Folder properties</guilabel> dialog, check <guilabel>Don&apos;t display [...] or (...) at the beginning of subject in summary</guilabel>, or <guilabel>Delete [...] or (...) at the beginning of subject on reply</guilabel>, respectively.</para>
