Are you referring to the Reply-To: header?


If so, I'm not going to set it for every message I send so it will send it to
the list. I don't think most E-mail clients support it. What I can try doing is
hitting reply-to-list only, but still if the mailing list does not include a
reply-to header then people might still reply to me in private. 

I include the note at the bottom to educate people and as a way to say
"You've replied to me in private? Shame on you! You should have read what I
wrote there.". In any case, hitting reply-to-all-recipients is common sense and
common courtesy, and that's what you should do from now on.

You should have read my signature.

Oh! I wish you could see the look on his face! Actually, I would have also
liked to see the look on his face, but just then I woke up from the dream.
