Thanks Ian and Geoffrey - but "reply all" doesn't work here!

"Reply all" applied to your messages (Geoffrey and Ian) just gives me your address in the "to" field, and nothing in the "cc" field. If I try it on some other posts it seems to give me a selection of addresses in the "to" field, including canberrabirds, and I can delete the surplus addresses, but this is much more complex than other groups I've been using for a decade, so there is obviously something different in my setup from what this list assumes. I can live with it, but will undoubtedly be sending erroneous messages to individuals at times for which I apologise in advance.

the list was revamped a year or so ago.  I think the idea was to reduce
unnecessary/unintended 'reply alls'.  Geoffrey

Subject: [canberrabirds] How to reply on this list?

I just noticed that if I hit "reply" to a post on this list, the response
is addressed to the previous sender, not the list.  All my other lists have
the group address in the "Reply To" field, but this one doesn't seem to
have the "Reply To" field at all.

So how do I reply to messages without manually cutting and pasting the
address?  Or is this something peculiar to us Eudora users?
