Meaning of FOLLOWUP

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

On usenet, a posting generated in response to another posting (as opposed to a reply, which goes by e-mail rather than being broadcast). Followups include the ID of the parent message in their headers; smart news-readers can use this information to present usenet news in "conversation" sequence rather than order-of-arrival. See thread.
