Moi, moi? send a private msg. to the list??? _I_'ve never done that............. Just experimented with the "group reply" to one of our Gmail people. It appears to work. Imagine that. I knew it had to be used with the Relay list, and with the AN-List; I suppose we could retrain ourselves to use it here. But would it mean we'd then get two copies of a message, one from the replier, one from the list? Don't need no more stinkin msgs. in my inbox :-(((( It's bad enough when MSN occasionally burps and send duplicates; my old dial-up did it quite frequently.
