OTOH, Gmail is also a "wonky email-client" due to its Reply-To setting - it seems to explicitly set replies to go to the original author, which breaks the normal "replies go to the list" behaviour since the list doesn't override a Reply-To header if present. I like Gmail for its threading, which is why I use it on CONLANG, but I think that if many subscribers used Gmail, it would be a pain since I would constantly have to check the "To:" address on replies. Just my two fepni, in case someone thinks that Gmail Can Do No Wrong. Cheers, -- Philip Newton <philip.newton@...>
