Hi :)
Ok, so moving the column in Excel is a little easier IF you have
reasonably fine motor control of the mouse and understand about
watching the way the cursor changes (which many office workers seem to
have trouble with (or is that just in my place and previous 3

The problem seems to be that if you press the Ctrl key just before you
drop then it replaces everything in the column under it.  Pressing Alt
has no effect.  Pressing Shift does make it fairly clear that the
column is going to be inserted between 2 columns.

So i still think that Calc is better at this.  It think it does
involve knowing more rather than being intuitive as the cursor doesn't
seem to change at all so it doesn't give any clues that certain things
can be done.  On the other hand most people don't notice the cursor
changes and i missed it myself when i was in a rush the other day.

As for blindly clicking on "Reply to all" i tried the way Tanstaafi
suggested and it meant i had to do quite a bit more.  It wasn't just a
case of deleting the one address because i then needed to copy&paste
the Users List address and then delete the address left in the CC.  Of
course i could have just cut&paste but cutting risks losing stuff.  So
it's like a lot of these things, a LOT more complicated than
necessary.  Personally i usually find my email 'client' removes
duplicates for me.  On the odd occasion when one slips through it's
much easier for me to hit delete than it would have been for the other
person to edit all their address lines.  So i am sorry if i appear
rude but please contact the postmaster of the list to ask them to
change the list's behaviour back to the way that used to work so much

Regards from
Tom :)

stupid thing..

I do NOT need to see your messages TWICE - I'm on the list, dammit.

I've not tried the Excel edges one yet.  Even if it does work i think
the LibreOffice one is easier and more forgiving but maybe i'm biased.

I have confirmed it works, but I agree the Libreoffice way is *much* easier.
