TopWorking with message threads
Messages with the same subject, that were sent in reply to other messages, are presented in a special way. As replies to messages accumulate, they create a thread of related messages. Each reply in the thread is numbered; by default, the subject of the first reply starts with "Re:", the subject of the reply to this reply starts with "Re(2):", and so on. When you group messages by subject in List view, all older messages in a thread are grouped under the most recent message.There is a limit to the number of FirstClass messages that can be displayed with a web browser. Only the most recent messages are shown. To see an older message in a thread, open a more recent message, then click Previous in Thread.
Following message threads
If you open a message that is part of a thread, you can open the next message in the thread by clicking Next in Thread. Dealing with Called, No message notifications
