The key problem in this case seems to be that, rather than creating an
email from scratch with the freebsd-questions address as the recipient,
you hit "reply".  Emails actually kinda keep track of whether they're in
response to other emails, ane which emails those are.  Many of us use
mail clients that make use of that to enhance our ability to deal with
email efficiently, and when you hit "reply" when you're starting a whole
new discussion topic you end up with your email being slotted into a
"thread" dedicated to a different topic.  As such, you end up "hijacking
a thread".  Rule of thumb: Unless you're actually replying to something
someone else said, don't use the "reply" button in your email client.

As for your question: read up on "X forwarding" with the "ssh" tool.  If
you need further help beyond that, *please* start a new thread and ask
there.  I'll try to keep an eye out for such a thread so I can reply if I
have some help to offer.
