Re: replying to sender instead of list

Hi.

In an earlier message Cy said:
"The “reply to sender” has been a subject of many conversations. (LOLLOLLOL)
Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not even with the exact same 
circumstances."



Technically this is an impossibility. The exact same circumstances will, 
without doubt, lead to the same results.



Though this may seem to be nit picking, I don't mean it that way.

Yesterday I pointed out a set of circumstances in which the "reply to sender" 
scripts seemed to work. They were using outlook express when the sender's name 
is in the address book. I don't think the jaws version is important: I have 
tried it on jaws 9, 10, 11 and 12, and they all worked as expected.



Yesterday I also pointed out a case in which the scripts did not work 
correctly: when the sender's name was not in the address book. I'm assuming 
that the scripts will work ok when the sender is an individual and not a group. 
But this is a trivial case. Why not just use the "reply" keystroke ctrl+r.



I had hoped that others would site similar or contrary cases to mine. To my 
knowledge it hasn't happened yet.



Here's still hoping for a serious discussion of this miscreant script.

    Hi,

    The “reply to sender” has been a subject of many conversations. (LOLLOLLOL)

    Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not even with the exact same 
circumstances.

    The real killer is when JAWS dutifully reports “replying to sender”. You 
think, Aha, got it whipped – until – you take a look at the “to” field and find 
the email address of the group. (LOLLOLLOL)

    This has been true from JAWS 9 forward and through XP, Vista and W7.

    Life is fun, enjoy it.

    Okay, I may be on to something here (and, maybe not <lol>).

     

    I took Dave's message as an example, and tried insert+shift+r. Jaws (or 
outlook) tried to send the message back to the list. This is not what I wanted.

     

    I then added Dave's name to my address book and tried again. Voilla! It 
tried to send a message to Dave.

     

    I am using 32-bit windows/xp home and outlook express with jaws 12 v252 (I 
think).

      Douglas:

       

      Nice instructions, but you did not specify which email client in which 
you would use those instructions.

       

      As someone has pointed out, each email client has its own method of 
performing this function.

       

      Sincerely:

        Once you find out who sent the message, go to Tools, add to address 
book, sender, enter twice to add to addressbook, then forward or send a new 
message to the name of the actual sender you just added to the addressbook.

          Thanks for the info.  And how do we reply to someone off-list---Some 
people put their personal e-mail in the list message; others do not.  Didn�t 
know if I was once again missing something.

          Hi,

          If you need a new watch, talking or Braille, I would suggest you 
visit the following site:


          http://www.futureaids.com

          Their prices are very good and they do not charge for shipping.

          Several folks on another list have replied to me saying that they 
have used this company and that the products are as advertised and the return 
policy is also good.

          HTH,

          Hi List,

           

          My Braille and talking watches are dead.  I�m ashamed to say I can�t 
remember how to find out what time it is using my computer, which has JAWS 11 
with Windows 7.  I remember at one time many moons ago control t got me the 
time, but someone must have set that up for me.  Can someone help?

           

          Thank you in advance.
