    'Reply to all' includes me? (Office XP)

    When I do a "reply to all" to e-mail addressed to me, it includes my own e-mail address in the "To" field. I always have to delete it; otherwise, I get sent a copy. I'm not sure what I did to cuase this behaviour, but I don't like it. How do I get rid of it?

    Thanks,

    I would have thought that Outlook would compares the addresses in the message to which you are replying with the address in your account settings and, if they match, drops you from the recipients of the new message. But I can't seem to make that happen. I always get added to the list of reply recipients. Not sure if there is any fix for this. I'd love to hear of one.

    Outlook isn't the only email program that does this. Another one for "mswish"??? <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Hmm. It doesn't do this for me when individual names are used. It does do it with distribution lists. I don't know of any Outlook or Exchange option to control this.

    I think the clue is in the wording!
    "Reply to All" means what it says, surely.
    What you actually want is the option "Reply to everyone except me" -- but they couldn't fit that on the button, so they didn't implement it...

    (Seriously, though, it's been like that ever since Outlook 97, at least. No, it isn't sensible -- but it sure is upward compatible!)

    Ita, esto, quidcumque...
