Yes, I did do that - it was just a simple way to obtain the email
address.  I'll be careful not to do this again as I was unaware of this.

Thanks,

Possibly he's an innocent victim of today's over-helpful MUAs.  If I'd
never seen or been told about the Message-ID:, In-Reply-To:, and
References: headers, I'd think that the above actions had wiped out all
traces of the previous thread, and I would think I'm being efficient by
letting the MUA copy the list address for me instead of typing it
myself.

Authors of gooey MUAs would do well to support listmail better by, for
example, providing a button to "send new message to the list that
reflected this message", or enabling the association of a folder with an
address and providing a button for "send to this folder's associated
address".

Typically when a software vendor says that a product is "intuitive" he
means the exact opposite.
