When I see a post that I want to respond to, I simply click the Reply button and it will bring up a new box with the message and the "To" field will be set to the correct mailing list. However with all the debian lists, if I click reply, it will open a new box and the "To" field will be set to the user that sent the message and not the debian list. I will have to delete the users name, and then manually type in the correct list. Sometimes using "Reply to all" will kinda work. The original user will be in the "To" field and the list will be in the "CC" field, sometimes but not always.According to http://packages.debian.org/changelogs/pool/main/i/icedove/icedove_220.127.116.11-1/changelog the replytolist feature is introduced since icedove 18.104.22.168-1 onwards. What is your version of thunderbird or icedove?
I am using 22.214.171.124. The change log makes it sound like it provides the "base" for the extension and not the extension it's self. I will dig around on google and see if I can find it.
I don't know. Anyone know what I am talking about? Is this just "normal"?This question comes up pretty frequently. Your best bet is to use thunderbird version which has replytolist feature or install the extension which provides this feature or use an email client which knows how to deal with mailing lists (Ex :- kmail, mutt etc.,) or use a news reader (Ex :- knode) to read the list via a newsgroup. You might also want to read https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=45715 which tells that this bug has not been fixed upstream in around 7 years! hth raju
7 years? That is terrible.
