Okay people LISTEN UP! Time for another helpful lesson in how to use your mailer. When you are replying to the list you need to remove all of the addresses that aren't on the list. i.e. Kill that whole Cc: line. It is extremely pointless. In the example below jeremy just got three copies of a letter saying essentially good idea. I don't think he needs that big of an ego boost. :) From: Con <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sender: email@example.com To: Jeremy Elson <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ THIS LINE! KILL IT! (move the email@example.com to the "To:" line Subject: Re: OFFICIAL FTP SITE for CircleMUD changed! Date: Tue, 30 Apr 1996 13:37:17 +0200 (METDST) Con, Sorry if I picked on you, but your letter was just handy. over 3/4th of this silly list does this. We get enough spam as is. Please direct all replies directly to me, not the list, they don't want to see it.
