I assume a lot of us get a lot of mail daily. I find it helpful, faster, and safer to screen all my mail using an old command line mail program (on VMS) before switching to Outlook to deal with people (known to me) who send me mail with attachments.

I used reply/all to reply to this and it appears to go to (sorry Tom) and Is this acceptable? If not, do I have to just switch to outlook where I can correct the "to" address manually or extract the mail and send it to the list?
