[RCU] German - Reply - Tag

 Hello,

 I try to write in English.

 A normal Reply-Mail starts with 'Re: ' in the subject.

 But there are some german Mail-Reader which are using other tag's like:
 RE:
 Betreff:
 AW:
 WG:
 Antwort:

 If I'm writing an reply the new subject looks like
 'Re: WG: Antwort: Test'
 I think that looks unprofessional!
 A better style is:
 'Re: Test'

 For this I did a code-change in program/steps/mail/compose.php
 starting at line 905
 <snip>
   else if ($compose_mode == RCUBE_COMPOSE_REPLY)
   {
    $MESSAGE->subject = ltrim($MESSAGE->subject, "RE:");
    $MESSAGE->subject = ltrim($MESSAGE->subject, "Betreff:");
    $MESSAGE->subject = ltrim($MESSAGE->subject, "Re:");
    $MESSAGE->subject = ltrim($MESSAGE->subject, "AW:");
    $MESSAGE->subject = ltrim($MESSAGE->subject, "WG:");
    $MESSAGE->subject = ltrim($MESSAGE->subject, "Antwort:");

     if (preg_match('/^re:/i', $MESSAGE->subject))
 </snip>

 But sometimes are too many characters deleted - I don't know why!

 Best regards from Germany, palatinate

  Ulli
