Hi Michael, you wrote:

See the message from Marcus Hall (Hi!) for what I imagined...

: Btw. could you please leave this list in the reply-to list of your mails.
: It is quite annoying to always add this list manually for a reply.

For me, too.

: And - please also stop sending replies to the list *and* the original

Sorry, my current mailer has no easy way to leave off the author and specify
the list only instead. Perhaps you could use MS Exchange which filters
duplicates by Message-ID 8-)

Bye, Heribert (
For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
