Missing Emails

Well, I've been using patchwork for a couple weeks now, and it seems
pretty nice, but I have noticed that it misses a lot of emails. I know
it scans for specific headers, but those sometimes appear not to be
present. I was wondering if anyone else had this problem and what they
do to overcome it? It seems to miss a lot of emails where the list was
CC'ed instead of To'd. A couple patches were lost entirely because of
this; I'm not sure their header problem, but it seems related to not
using "hg email" and instead sending to the list from web-Outlook.

If there aren't any suggestions, I will try looking into the headers
some more and come up with a solution. I also need to look into adding
a nice way to hook "Reviewing" in a message to edit my status, still.

Hopefully my trial use of patchwork at work will persuade my office to
use it officially (we currently don't have a patch tracking system
outside email officially).
