Perhaps someone could explain to me how this works: if I send a message
to a person, and cc the mailing list, or if I send a message "to:" two
mailing lists [both occur to me fairly regularly], what happens to the
headers? Can someone 'reply to all' to my message and have it go to the
'all' that I, as the author of the message, intended?
My sort-of ongoing problem with MLMs isn't so much getting the mail
filtered properly --- I only need to figure that out once and then
'emtomb' it in my filter set and then never think about it again... what
bugs me is the inconsistency of addresses for "how to reply and get it to
go where you want". If the system removes the list-identity from the
email, as a _reader_ now [not the filterset], how do I know WHY I got the
message? It'll say "To: <ME>" and "From: <the author>" --- where will
the "this came in from the manure forkers mailing list" info be hidden?
Or are we entering a world where you *HAVE* to use filters to sort your
mail [and so I'd only know what mailing list it came in on by which
folder it got sorted to?!].
I may be in the minority [and I'll probably lose] but I still rather
prefer that the headers in the message I receive reflect the addressing
and routing the author intended...
