I understand!! Unfortunately, lots of email clients don't have
that ability.  Mozilla Thunderbird don't have that ability, for example;
its "Reply in Group" extension only works with Usenet postings, and
NOT with email mailing lists.

So.. if you have that capability, please use it; Eike makes a good point.
If not, please try to remember to just post to the office-formula list, 
and NOT
also reply to members, so that members don't get unnecessary 
And in advance, please forgive those who forget, it's easy to forget.

Also, if anyone wants to modify the Mozilla Thunderbird extension so that
it also works with mailing lists, PLEASE be my guest :-).
