>lists.sr.ht definitely does not use AWS's email thing.

I rechecked -- yes, sorry, my bad.
I was confused by "mailto:~sircmpwn/aerc@lists.sr.ht?cc=Kalyan%20Sriram%20%3Ckalyan%40coderkalyan.com%3E&in-reply-to=%3C0101017d2631dd49-ba71b9cb-c4d4-44e2-ba94-22060a6bab87-000000%40us-west-2.amazonses.com%3E&subject=Re%3A%20Fork%20proposal" link

Are you aware that this mail list is run using AWS Simple Email Service?
And may I ask you, what hardware/OS are you using, could it be Macbook by some chance?

I didn't mean to be rude, in case it looked that way.
I will not leave so fast after I spent a few hours figuring out how to set up neomutt and use it with mailing lists.
I am feeling like I am got in some long-forgotten druid circle in naphthalene smelling mantle of apprenticehood.
And now I am wondering, why you are using mailing lists with the git-over-email approach, maybe it is convenient or maybe you have some other reasons.

Well, yes, but why aerc had not much activity in the first place?
Maybe, at least partly, because of its not-friendly-to-common-programmer infrastructure?

That is one of the reasons to migrate somewhere like Github/Gitlab/Codeberg

I am even unsure if that message will appear in the thread (attempt #8)

Goo name, why change it

Somewhere like Github/Gitlab/Codeberg?
