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.
