Subject: Re: [office-comment] Suggested addition: Binder-like file format
The mails from the mailing list server have a special header: List-Post: <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> I use two mail clients: KMail and Thunderbird. In both I get the option to reply to the mailing list. In KMail, this has the shortcut L, in Thunderbird it is Ctrl+Shift+L. Also, in both mail client simply replying on the office-comment@ mails sends mail to the mailing list only, despite that not being the From: address. So, not all mail clients are equally clever about mailing list mails. Cheers, Jos On Thursday 08 January 2015 17:42:06 Rob Jasper wrote: > Hi Kris, > > Reply to sender always sends back to sender...
