Strife, I would think that a reader would look for examples on how to process incoming email in an entry on incoming email, rather than an entry on how to *send* email... but rather than spend 9 days debating that, I've made the reader aware (under examples ) that tips on how to process incoming email are now in the outgoing entry (llEmail.) -- Chaz. 11 October 2008. 11 am SLT.

Prims can receive email from not just prims but from outside of SL. By having the examples on email only detail how to handle prim2prim email confuses the situation. By having the the examples on llEmail, the function that in fact places the headers (that complicates the parsing) in the emails sent in the first place, eliminates that confusion. Having a note about this on email is totally appropriate. -- Strife (talk|contribs) 11:54, 11 October 2008 (PDT)
The information could be on both articles as long as it was properly described and encapsulated; so that the user knew they were learning about emails sent with llEmail. The problem with it originally was that the text didn't make it clear that it was only describing email sent with llEmail. -- Strife (talk|contribs) 12:00, 11 October 2008 (PDT)
Strife, can you add then pls a note to llEmail covering how emails from out-of-world might look, and be handled? So that we have info for people on processing emails whatever their source? The note might be as simple as just saying how out of world email differs in not having the Linden headers, etc? -- Chaz. 11 October 2008. 12:15 PM SLT.
