If you want to follow a particular conversational thread,
the list archives can be visited in monthly collections (truly unedited
files showing who said what and when), and do reveal the subject lines.
This is where it's obvious how much more useful it is to answer queries
to the list and not just to the questioner. *IF* you see an unanswered
query and need the answer, consider posting a personal message to the individual
who posted the original question. He / She may have some answers which
never made it to the list-as-a-whole, sent by smart but shy OEM-L
Replying to these messages will be difficult:
1) a major delay may have passed since the message
was first posted
2) there is no direct "reply" capacity, requiring
manual cutting and pasting
3) the software that manages the OEM-L mail-list
does not accept messages from non-subscribers. Thus, if you want to communicate
with the community of Occupational & Environmental Medicine, you need
the forum first.
