I am administrating an alias mail exploader list. However there are
two problems with the list, neither is a show stopper but they are
1.If you send a letter to the exploader address, the
computer just goes through the alias file and sends the
letter out to everyone on the list. In 10 out of 10 cases,
the person sending the letter is on the list. So if you send
a letter, you end up getting a copy back.
2.When you get a letter from the list, the 'from:' line will
have the address of the person who originally sent in the
letter instead of the address of the e-mail address of the
list. So everytime you wish to respond to a letter you got
off the list, you have to delete the 'to' line on your
response and replace it with the list address.
Are there non radical solutions to these problems? Preferably some
program that will examine the 'from' line on the letter sent to it
and not send back an echo if the person is on the alias list and
will also format the letters it does send out so that when you reply
it will reply to the list instead of whoever originally sent the
I will try to read this group but the post volume is
ENORMOUS, e-mail responses are prefered, I will post a
summary of the results (always trying to do my part to keep
down band width munching).
