Indeed, so some settings might do with a tweak, to at least obfuscate
posters addresses, so that at least script kiddies are flumoxed.
I never intentionaly use any "Reply to All" function. In fact, this
mailer doesn't even have a button for that. You have to select where the
reply goes, after you hit the "reply" button, from a list of available
addresses in the incoming message header, that the mailer has recognised.
Just a thought as this problem is not going to go away.
How about a "regional Beastie" wearing a headscarf and carring an assault
rifle instead of a trident?
That's me targeted then....
