Well, as that one person was the one who needed the help enough to ask the question in the first place... I just don't agree that the reply-to field should be changed. Most email clients are intelligent enough to recognise mailing lists when they see them, and those that aren't, well, I don't think the world should have to change to fit in with poor software. I know that often people don't have a choice with what is installed on a computer, but surely it's better trying to speak to whoever is in-charge of that to ask them to change their procedures than get however many shared systems (i.e. mailing lists) to change their methods? I guess I'm too far gone down the open source route now to 'get' the closed source problems that many people face in their offices. If I don't like a piece of software, I can choose different software, contact the developers, or even attempt to create a workaround myself. Thanks, Ash http://www.ashleysheridan.co.uk
