Posts/replies here on a Backup Central Forum are identified with an ID in the left margin. However, this information is not passed through to its partner mailing list, at least in the case of "veritas-bu" and the "NetBackup-Forum".
This is important especially for contributions that are not manually signed. A reasonable person will and should look at a reply from say Curtis or Paul with a different confidence than, say, me!
If the information can't be automatically entered, perhaps could be encouraged to sign contributions (that will be reflected outside these forums)?
