Re: Repy to List?

I'm not sure what you mean... I use Lotus cc:Mail at work (no home system) 
and it only allows to reply to sender or all addresses (which would include 
the type-3 errors).  However, it does allow replied text to be appended to 
the top of the message (like you are reading right now).  Due to the length 
of some messages I will delete most of the message and end it with an 
ellipsis (...) to show that there was more to the message; this also helps 
to jog some people's memory (like mine) about what's being discussed.  I 
don't have a problem (hardware or $$/disk(RAM) space) with long mail 
messages but I know some people do and this is why they had to exit the 
mailing list.

My three cents,

Most of the other lists I subscribe to (and whihc use ListServ) have the 
default set to "Reply to List" rather than "Reply to Sender".  I find ti a 
major advantage to reply to the list since one is then able to follow 
threads.  Even if I don't contribute to the thread, I often gain valuable 
information from it and my mailbox becomes an archive of Type 3 info.

Anyone else have any prefs in this matter?
