Virgil, I don't think it's just the list. The mail client must have something to do with it, as well; I use Thunderbird and have a "Reply List" option on this list, while on some others I do and some I don't.

I'm assuming you're meaning MS. Actually, with my MS Windows Live Mail interface, "Reply All" means just that; it replies to everyone in the original message, whether individual or list (which is why Brad will get two copies of this message). There's nothing confusing about that. The "problem," if that is the right way to put it, is that it has no "Reply List" option (at least none that I can see.)

The frustration is that, if I want to reply only to the list, I have to hit "Reply All" and then delete all the addresses that aren't the list. Now, is that the fault of MS Live Mail, or the way the list was set up? As has been repeatedly reported by others, this is the *only* list (at least that I use) that behaves this way. I'm more inclined to blame the list than MS's email software.

I'm not a huge fan of MS, but I'm also not going to blame them for problems they didn't create.
