    The way e-mail lists work? (IE 6.x)

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Loungers

    OK I have something to ask of you, sorry if this sounds far fetched, but it is what I see in front of my eyes.

    I subscribe to many e-mail lists, I like getting e-mail <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    But when I was setting my filters, in Juno e-mail client software, to filter my messages into specific folders I noticed that I am getting e-mail messages from someone who is on the list.

    OK I shall explain (Both Member A and B and myself are members of the same list):

    1)Member A sends a message to the list. That is done seemingly using the ordinary way, by sending the message to the main list e-mail.
    2)2Member B sends a reply to Member A

    If you click reply to a list message, what kind of addressing do you see?

    (Member B must be sending to the list, but how exactly you would have to tell us.)

    I figured it out. The guy was acctually BCCing the list. I read the e-mail header and I found that it was going to the server where the list is hosted, and I also saw that my copy is coming from that same server. It does seem odd for someone to BCC a public list though don't you think.

    Thanks again
