You can also refer to this document:


That is a long, cogent reponse to the unicom document.

hehe... your statement is valid, but you must first show that not-munging is
making the common case not-simple.

In my Mutt mailer, I always use group-reply (bound to 'r'; although I should
probably use list-reply more often). The group-reply does the right thing
for individual mail, and for list mail. When I want to respond to a single
person, I use the standard reply (bound to alt-r).

In Outlook, I hit the Reply All button (or ctrl-shift-r), or the Reply
button (or ctrl-r).
