I have the reverse problem.  I get a message on the list, and i want to send
the reply to the list; my response is taylored to a group of people, not the
individual.  But when I hit reply, Outlook sticks the address of the person
who sent the original post in the "To" box, and forgets the list's address.
Then I hit send, and only one person gets the message.  They're afraid that
I sent it only to them, so they don't forward it to the list.  Does this
ever happen to anyone, or am I just that lame?
