Re: Sorry about the broadcast messages

Yes, if just reply is used, the reply will go only to the list. That's the way 
it is 
supposed to work.

I guess, then if you want to reply to the poster only you will have to hit 
reply 
and delete the list's address in the "To" header and paste the poster's 
address in.

I guess I'm spoiled, as my email client, Pegasus, will by default reply to the 
address set in the "Reply To" header if that is available. But before I accept 
that default it presents me with a list of all addresses in the email's 
complete 
headers and I can choose whoever I wish to reply to.
