It's alright. It's just what if you don't know who's onlist
and whos not.
I remember some posts here where someone
requested that such-and-such be Cc:-ed into that (new) thread.
If I just hit reply and just put ilug at domain linux.ie in the To:
line then they're left out.
eg. a friend emails me with a linux question. I try to help
him for a while but eventually decide to ask the list. It won't
be long before I'm manually forwarding everything on to him/her
(what if I can't stay online for much longer - such as a friday
To sum up my point (s)
I DO want the "reply to:" to only point to one person.
I DO NOT want to change that behaviour.
SORRY if that's is the impression you got
I just think it's possible for the list software to make
sure everyone in that thread gets the mails once and once
Multiple emails is a minor problem, my (and yours)
theoretical off-list friends not getting help is not
I NEVER WANTED TO CHANGE THE BEHAVIOUR OF "reply to:"
just "reply to all:"
Sorry for the shouting
