Am creating template pages for the headers and footers, just to get rid of the "Thread View" link and make a minor text modification... (Was going to modify print.c, but after looking at it, decided to not. Didn't feel I should bother tracking down lang[MSG_OTHER_MAIL_ARCHIVES].)

And, I need some help. I want to replicate those nice links in the usetable format, but a couple substitution cookies elude me.

  1. Is this how %m is intended to be used?
    <th><a href="mailto:%m">New Message</a></th>
  2. And the %m, %s and %i in the Reply? Will they be url encoded?
    <th><a href="mailto:%m?subject=%s&replyto=%i">Reply</a></th>

Or should I use the $TO, $SUBJECT, and $ID as in the config file? mailcommand = mailto:$TO?subject=$SUBJECT&replyto=$ID

3. Does someone have an example of header/footer templates that replicate the functionality of the usetable=1 of the config file, that you could show me?

4. This kind of thing appears in all my message pages. Is it necessary? Is it used by hypermail? Or can I safely leave it out?
