Hello Tom,

----- my basic question is "why"? And why fight a mail program? I use Pegasus 
Mail, and it gives me a menu for answering and boxes to tick. There is no 
copy and paste. I can tick "From", I can tick "Cc", "Reply to", "Sender" and 
one more, and I can tick any combination of those. If I click nothing, the 
reply goes to "Reply to", which is perfectly logical, because that is what 
the received header says. What you want is for ARSClist to strip the "Reply 
to" that Roger (just as an example) has written and substitute the ARSCLIST. 
Because you cannot lay the blame on Roger (and everybody else who may choose 
to have a particular "Reply to", because they might choose to send from 
another account.

I just need to be awake when I send a mail, and what is the wrong in that? We 
have had amusing mismailings (including a hidden reference to this year's 
IAML meeting), but it is the sender's responsibility. I have erred, too, I 
know!

I am much more curious about the comparatively rare instances, where an 
attachment goes through ARSClist and is received here. That could be a useful 
feature if it were in general use.

Best wishes,


George
