RE: THIS IS THE SUBJECT LINE - cut it short

You have to delete a few letters from the subject line (see above).

Like this one!!

Annoying really - especially if the OP has been allowed to post a title that long.

RE:

More often than not when I get that message the O/P's subject is absolutely nowhere near the length quoted. For a start the subject of this topic is apparently 86 characters now.  It's not, not even with 'RE:' tagged on at the start, it's 72.

RE: RE:

Getting this message, I usually just try a second time, sometimes third time. More often than not, it just passes without changing anything.

(by the way: this is in contradiction with Einstein's definition of madness: doing the same thing over and over, and expecting different results... But hey, it works!)

So that's a win for chaoticians!

lol that's what happens when you paste it into MS Word and look at the wrong statistic.  On this occasion I sit corrected, but there have been  many times where it's gave a ridiculous length when there have only been a handful of words in the subject line

RE: RE:

The system seems to duplicate the heading rather than leave it alone, or simply add 're'.  V annoying!
