Everybody works differently. Whatever is good for you! :-)

Right. I was doing it your way and it _was_ a pain (but
admittedly a minor one). What I saw in the context menu when
right clicking on the Message To:  was two choices: Write a
message to this address, and Reply to this address. I got to
thinking that it would be just as easy to provide a choice to
either Write a message to all addressees, or Reply to all
addressees. It's not a critical thing, but when there is more
than one procedure to do, there's a possibility for error to be
introduced. I can cope without it, but I do like Miguel's idea of
using Edit as New. If I'm going to err, I'd rather it be the
subject line than the address positions. It seems cleaner
somehow. Thanks for your input, it gave me a chance to review
again what I was doing. :-)

Well I do that too. But over here it is not much work, because I highlight the 
whole CC line and then copy and paste, and do the same with the BCC line. This 
is two c actions, I don't find that too many.

Well, it does work. Not CC and BCC together, but for each line.

Maybe I am misunderstanding your questions, though.

It's a good idea. It has the advantage of only needing to select
the previous text and subject then type over them, much faster
than copying and pasting... I could even change the hotkey to
something more convenient than Alt+F6. Thanks!

As a workaround, you may select the message and, form the top menu 
Message, select 'Edit as new'. A new editor window will open with the 
To, CC and BCC fields properly filled. However, you will have to edit 
the Subject, if it is different, and obviously the text of the message.
