I did not send my reply to your question to You, I replied to the List.
I expect and want all other replys to Also be done through the list
Not sent to me personally.
This is the expected behavior for all properly set-up mailing list.

In Claws under Configuration/Writing  check the box
"Reply button invokes mailing list reply"

Thereafter any reply you send to a message that contains a "List-Id"
header, as the Claws list does, will be sent to the list.

By not doing so you can and will "piss-off" the list members who are
trying to assist you.


Love is in the offing.  Be affectionate to one who adores you.
