Hi Rod,

Yup, I'm using Eudora OSE (Open Source Edition) on both Windows and 
Linux.  Relevant message options are basically reply, reply all, and 
forward.  I can reply on this list by hitting reply all, as some have 
mentioned, then delete all the addresses except the list address.  On 
others, I just hit reply.  In either case, I have to make sure I send 
from the right return address so the list system will accept my post.




(PS - If you email me and don't get a quick response, don't be concerned.
I get about 300 emails per day from alternate energy mailing lists and
such.  I don't always see new messages very quickly.  If you need a
reply and have not heard from me in 1 - 2 weeks, send your message again.)
