I just checked, like we do with HTTP URLs, the mailto urls can carry  
parameters. Each email field can be a param. For example:

mailto:soapdog at

will open a mail composition window with my mail and the hello  
subject, the other fields can be added like you'd do in a CGI call.  
This is working on Mac OS X. So, one can change the way the digest  
work so that every message in the digest carry a mailto url for  
replying to that message.

what about this?
