Yep. Incorrect. Each list manager has a choice on how to set their options for their
particular list. The list manager can choose either to have the
replies go to the From: address or the Resent-From: address.
If you look at the top of this particular e-mail, you will see:
From: khines1(a)qwest.net <--- this is the one that this list is set for
Some list owners have chosen the Resent-From: and the replies go to the list. Some list
owners have chosen the From: and the replies go to an
individual. Always look at the top of e-mails that you are about to send and double check
who is going to get the message. The alternative is to do a
Reply-All, instead of a Reply, when responding to a message. That has a slight drawback,
the person who sent the first message (the one that you are
replying to) would get two copies: one directly to them and one through the list address.
Hope that helps,
