The mirroring is one-way only. What I do in Thunderbird is to hit "Reply to All", delete the address lines beginning with "muc*" and add the address line "To: email@example.com". I believe you said you were using a browser, so I don't know if what I describe can be done through some web site. But it works fine for me in Thunderbird, and it will probably work fine in any other newsreader. -- Tore _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
