Below is an explanation. Fred -- Fred H. Olson fholson [at] cohousing.org Minneapolis,MN 55411 (612)588-9532 Amateur radio: WB0YQM List manager of: Cohousing-L and Nbhd-tc (Twin Cities Neighborhood issues list) More info: http://www.mtn.org/~fholson/sig-detail.htm The Reply-to problem on the new (3/2001) Cohousing-L Cohousing-L is now configured to have replies go to the list by default. This is quite common on mailing lists and encourages follow-up discussion. However, it does make it cumbersome to reply to the author from some email programs - particularly from Microsoft Outlook Express. This is a problem with Microsoft Outlook Express mailer. (A bug or a "feature" depending on your point of view. I (Fred Olson) am not too familiar with Outlook Express, but in version 5.0 "reply all" does not really reply to all... An Outlook Express workaround: (A workaround is way of doing what you want despite a bug etc.) Have Outlook Express configured so replies quote the original message (Click on: Tools/Options/Send/Include Message in reply/OK) This puts the sender's email address in the header of the quote. (See example of quote below) To reply to an author of cohousing-L message: 1) Select message 2) Click Reply 3) Highlight the From: address in the quote 4) Copy the address (Control-C) 5) Click on the To: address such that it gets highlighted 6) Paste author's address with Control-V (replacing original address) 7) If "replacing original address" did not work , edit... Delete any portion of the quote that is not needed for context for your reply. Example: ----- Original Message ----- From: "Fred H Olson" <fholson [at] tcfreenet.org> To: cohousing-L [at] cohousing.org Sent: Sunday, March 11, 2001 5:49 PM Subject: [Nbhd-tc]_Test message This is a test. Mailers should give options to use any addresses "Reply-to:" address, senders address all (which includes recipients of carbon copies. - which can then be edited). The mailer Fred uses (Pine) does this with option choices that come up in cases that a reply-to: header is present for example. _______________________________________________ Cohousing-L mailing list Cohousing-L [at] cohousing.org Unsubscribe info: http://www.communityforum.net/mailman/listinfo/cohousing-l
