I tried to reply to the person who replied to my original post. I did this by sending an email to

original post. Should I have used "RE: RE: <original subject line" instead?
No -- you should look at the addressees in the mail and responder
only to the sender, not the list, if that's what you want ...
But you ASKED a different question: how to add a (presumably new)
thread to the LIST. I believe you simply need to send a new message
or change the subject more, and not use RE: ... Eliot Moss
