#434 In-Reply-To: in mailto: links incorrect.

Mailman 2.1
Pipermail (42)

Mails in the archive have a mailto: link with which you
can reply to the email you're viewing. That mailto: URL
contains an &In-Reply-To= part, to set the In-Reply-To:
header in the generated mail and thus enable correct
threading of replies.

Unfortunately, we give the wrong ID. We give the
In-Reply-To: header of the message to which the user
would be replying, but we should be using Message-Id:
of the message in question, instead.

(although the example given there no longer shows the
problem because I've fixed the bug and recreated the
archives since then)

    Thanks for your bug report! This problem was fixed, using a slightly different patch, in rev.984 of the 2.1 tree; the first released version with the fix is Mailman 2.1.10.

    This bug can now be closed.
