Subject: Re: e-mail second thoughts

Doesn't everybody's e-mail address appear at the top of the postings as

they come in? Mine do. Whe I want to write smone I pull u an old

message of their s and just hit /r/.

A few people are on systems that strip the 'from' line from incoming

mail, leaving only the 'sender' line (ADS-L). Whether you can send

a reply to an individual rather than the list without re-addressing

also varies from system to system. The list is set up for ordinary

replies to go to the list. Some people have alternate reply commands

to reply to the original sender instead, but not all systems give that

option. Mine doesn't. If I want to reply to the individual instead

of the list, I enter 'r' and then change the 'to' line from the list

address to the individual's address.
