When I recieve a message through a mailing list, the headers will look like this: From: firstname.lastname@example.org To: email@example.com In a newsgroup, I would use the Followup feature (currently incorrectly called Reply due to bug 95623) to send a followup message to the newsgroup. However, when dealing with mailing lists, this feature is not available. All I have is Reply and Reply All. Reply will send my message to the sender only. This is not what I want; I want the entire list to see my message. Reply All will not only send my message to the list but also send an additional copy to the sender. This is not what either; firstly, there is no need to spam the sender with two copies of the same message, and secondly, if another list member uses the Reply All function on my message, both the original sender and myself will be spammed with an additional copy. (This is a snowball effect; if a fourth list member uses Reply All on the third message, both the original sender, myself, and the third list member will be spammed, and so on.) What I want is a Followup feature for mail; a Reply To Recipients But Not To Sender button.
