The reason for the strange multiple emails you get is easy to tell: It is because if one is not using the CVSNT newsserver (which I can't do at work due to silly firewall rules) and so is using the mail list then the only way to respond to the list is to "Reply All" and *then remove* the original poster from the address line. Just using "Reply" only gets the address of the original poster into the To: field and the list is all gone. This is a "feature" that to my knowledge the CVSNT list does not share with any other list I have ever joined. On those list a reply gets the list address and nothing else. So if you then forget to remove one of the addresses (easily done) there will be two emails sent... This issue was discussed one or two years ago at the beginning of my subscription to the list, but Tony Hoyle has a different view and I stopped nagging about it. After switching to the newsserver it also was no problem, because there you actually do post only to the server. Pity I can't use it at work though... I will try to remember in the future to remove your actual address from the To: field :-) Oops, almost forgot it this time again.... /Bo -----Original Message----- From: Oliver Giesen [mailto:ogware at gmx.net] Sent: den 3 december 2002 17:00 To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook Subject: Re: [cvsnt] Re: [cvsgui] Re: error on commit > Switch to Forté Agent then... > Bo Ah, I guess it'll also prevent me from accidental multi-posting, right? >;] BTW: I'm writing this for the umpteenth time now: Why is everybody always CC'ing to my personal email address recently?! There's absolutely no difference in the speed with which such messages reach me or the priority I give to them as it all goes to that address anyway. The only thing you accomplish by doing that is that I get your messages twice, which I start to find increasingly annoying... Oliver -----------------------
