Well... someone should tell the Thunderbird people that... I'm still hunting for the "Reply To List" button, and I've been looking for months. Actually, some mailing list managers actually are intelligent enough to not forward on an email if you're CC'ed. (Mailman comes to mind) I agree, having messages sent in duplicate can be annoying, but its not that hard to read one and delete the other. ;-) Besides, normally I filter out the user's email address if I know they're subscribed. -- +-------------------------------------------------------------+ | Stuart Longland -oOo- | | Atomic Linux Project -oOo- | | - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - | | I haven't lost my mind - it's backed up on a tape somewhere | +-------------------------------------------------------------+
