Relax Gary. Everyone has to start sometime. You just happened to start
after a long, drawn out, flame thread on these subjects.  ;-)

It is the way Thunderbird accounts are setup as default. Could happen to
anyone.

Another thing is to remove the Reply-To-Address *if* you don't want to
receive a reply from someone that replies to your post *and* see their
post on the list too. This one, for example, will go to the list *and*
to you for that reason.

Have a good day.
