You want me to tell you how to send an original email? Do you only
ever reply to something that someone else sends to you?
Just do the best you can -- I'm sure we will all cope.
P.S. As for how mailing lists work, that really has nothing to do with
this discussion. In this case, it is just "garbage in - garbage out"
for the list server.
So if I reply to a message and give it a new subject and mail it to coco at maltedmedia.com, that is different than making a new message, giving it a subject and mailing it to coco at maltedmedia.com ? Does this involve message fields that almost none of us can see?
