I have looked into the implementation details of what goes into Fidonet 'To'
field when you follow-up on (reply to) a message in jamnntpd/smapinntpd.
When you view an article, the 'To' field from the JAM message will show up as
an optional 'X-Comment-To:' header.
When you post an article as a result of a follow-up, your client may provide an
optional field 'References: ' with the message-id of the original message you
replied to (and sometimes the whole chain).
I have tested with Thunderbird for Mac and NewsTapLite for iOS and both passed
the correct 'References: ' header. Jamnntpd/smapinntpd will look up that
message-id from the 'Reference: ' header in the JAM database and will extract
the 'From' field of that message. That 'From' name will become a 'To' field of
the newly posted message. That 'From' name will also be used as initials when
smart quoting feature is enabled.
