I'm subscribed to a lot of technical mailing list
and of course from time to time someone sends a message without
a Subject: line. With the Pidgin mailing list a notable amount
of messages are send like the one I'm using to reply, i.e.
without Subject: line... Why is this? Are they send by use of
some MailUserAgent which makes it easy to do this, like this
   X-Mailer: YahooMailRC/211.6 YahooMailWebService/

Or what is the reason for this?
