Ken Marshall asked a very good question about replying to group messages which 
also illustrates why I am sending you updated email addresses for everyone in 
the Group. 

 

Ken wrote: “if I reply to another brother who is on the master list, does it go 
only to that brother, or does it go out to the whole group?”

 

ANSWER - If you REPLY to a group message, the To: list will automatically be 
set to dsp-ea-general@xxxxxxxxxxxxx <mailto:dsp-ea-general@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>  and 
if you don’t do anything, your Reply will go to the whole group, even if you 
have added additional email addresses

 

HOWEVER - If you want to Reply with a personal comment to just go to one or 
more specific Brothers, and NOT to the whole group, you have two simple options:

 

1.      Select REPLY, then delete the dsp-ea-general@xxxxxxxxxxxxx 
<mailto:dsp-ea-general@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>  address that automatically appears in 
the To: list and replace it with the addresses you want to use.

 

2.      Select FORWARD and enter in the addresses you want into the To: list 
(dsp-ea-general@xxxxxxxxxxxxx <mailto:dsp-ea-general@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>  does NOT 
automatically appear on a Forwarded message).

 

YITBOS,
