I find deleting to be slightly easier than copy & paste in order to include the original sender. Further, what difference does it make to you how many copies the original sender receives? If I happen to receive two copies of a response to me, I delete one - actually I delete both once I'm done with it.

            this requires having to delete the extraneous e-addresses  ;-)

Time is not the issue. The issue is, what does the RFC say? RFC's determine how things work, and how things will operate together. The primary problem as I now see it, is that there is apparently no companion RFC (or at least nobody has mentioned it) that specifies that email clients need to include a "Reply to List" button. That's an oversight. Someone with the skill and knowledge to amend RFC's needs to make that correction so that the next versions of all email clients include the button.

        Therefore, I'd like to know what is the time savings in this vs.
having the reply go to the list ???

That's something I agree with, is one of my pet peeves and you've stated the case perfectly.

        This change isn't anymore logical than some of these responders who
must think we should re-read the old message before finally seeing whatever
new message has been added - and their addition becomes almost lost amongst
the talk unless enough blank lines have been left; logically, the new
message should be where you can read it first - then if you need to
re-fresh your memory, scroll down to see what preceded it.

I think the safe response when using the changed list settings is use
Reply-all. For simplicity, the only instruction to users of the lists that
works consistently is Reply-all.

There is no Reply to List in Outlook.


My reply options changed to "reply all" not "reply list" in Thunderbird
when I received your email. The to field is your email and the cc is

It appears there is some inconsistent behavior with email clients and
webmail sites depending on how they receive the email
