#498 closed enhancement (fixed)

There should be no reply to sender / reply to all in response to a Mail-Followup-To: header when the mail is in a folder with mailing list support.

Reported by: broadblues Owned by: damato
Priority: high Milestone: YAM 2.9p1
Component: user interface Version: 2.9
Severity: minor Keywords:
Cc: OS Platform: All
Blocked By: Blocking:
Release Notes:

Slightly changed the logical of the mail reply action in terms of mailing lists. YAM will now directly reply to the Mail-Followup-To header entry if a matching mailing list is found. In addition, the SHIFT key will now make sure that a reply will always end up at the sender of a mail. Contrary to that, pressing the ALT key will directly reply to all (e.g. the mailing list).

Description

Problem

When replying to a mail with Mail-Followup-To: set the reply to sender / reply to all requester pops up. This is fine for mail in a norml folder (eg incoming) but it also pops up in a folder with mailing list support setup.

Since the act of setting up mailing list support for a folder explicitly decides the destination of mails in advance (ie by default send to the list) the default should be to send to list.

Analysis

Enhancement recommendation

The requester should not be shown by default, with mails be replied to list (or reply to all if you will) automatically.

Perhaps, as an extention to this, when pressing 'shift reply' or some similar qualifier combination the replyo/repltoall requester might be brought up to facilitate replying off list.
