Surely the part of the system that is responsible for making things easy
or convenient for users is the MUA - the user's agent. If the user's agent
refuses to permit a simple "reply to To: address" option to the user, that
is between them and their agent, it is none of the business of any part of
the submission or transport agents how the user agent and the user carry
out their relationship. If a MUA is not convenient, it may be argued that
it is not doing its intended job. But that is not majordomo's fault. It is
the fault of who-ever decided to make the agent too braindead to deal with
Whenever I wrote user agents, such as in my BBS programs, I always put a
"Comment to same place the message commented upon is going" asa well as a
"reply to wherever to message replied to came from". Is that such a
Blessed Be. -MarkM-
We do remote Linux install, config, support and administration. Inquire.
