I'm predominantly using the website.

This time I'm simply replying to the email.

It's decided to go to the group.  That's cool.

Are you talking about replying via email, or via the web site? I think it's 
best to do whatever works best with email, ie make it work like the old list.

That's probably OK, but people will have to go out of their way to reply to the 
group. That'll probably kill off conversations, but in some cases that'll be a 
good thing. I can see it not being the best for things like RFIs though. I like 
to use what went to the list from ages ago. If people respond to an RFI by 
hitting reply it'll never be captured by the list.

I think Peter's suggestion is probably a good one - to have REPLY go to just 
the Sender, and tell people how to reply-to-group as an option. Fewer headaches 
that way I think.

Of course, I am still keen for us to try<> where I have 5Gb of storage and can 
inexpensively bump that to 20Gb. And we have total control over everything, 
including attachment sizes. Just trying to get some settings sorted - there are 
over 7,000 members on the site, about 50 real ones and the rest spammers. Not 
sure whether it's best to have it set to "anyone can register" or not - it's 
easy to set posting to approved members only, and there are a few moderation 
options. Just have to work out whether the Wordpress site is the forum, and it 
accepts inbound emails, or whether I sit a mailing list on top of it. At the 
moment it just takes a feed from the Vicnet mailing list, but people can leave 
comments on messages (="posts")

Russell never comes out until after 10pm.

He is, in fact, a vampire.

(Is that a personal attack? From a moderator?!)

with his shc address. Don't ask me how that works.

Hmm, by the way, Russell is your email right?
