Re: NVDA release date was Re: [nvda] Easier way to edit exception dictionary?

That is correct - changing the subject line does not create a new thread. It
simply continues the existing thread with a different subject.

To create a new thread, you must create a new email, to the list address
(which is NVDA@NVDA.Groups.IO in this case), with whatever subject line you
require for the new thread.

As a general rule, using "reply" will always continue a thread, never create a
new one, because the information about which thread you are replying to is
carried across into the headers of your reply.

But just for clarification, does that mean my change to the subject line
did not actually create a new thread? I'm using Thunderbird, so if that
did happen I'd like to know how I can start a new thread and prevent
this from happening again.

years of knowledge and experience.
A user interface is like a joke.
If you have to explain it, it means it doesn't work.
