Thank you!

I think I am figuring it out so far, using Thunderbird. You are correct that is 
much easier when replying to e-mails received  from the mailing list.

One question I do have (though maybe you won't be able to answer about 
Thunderbird), is whether it is sufficient to reply directly to the mailing 
as Thunderbird wants to do when clicking its "Reply List" button?
I have  seen that my responses show up correctly in the mailing list, but is 
that enough for to whom I'm replying to see the message correctly?

Thunderbird does have the option for sending messages directly to the recipient 
and CC'ing the mailing list (by clicking "Reply All"), but it doesn't seem to 
the default action, and I'm not sure what the better behavior is in this case. 
Is there a reason to prefer one behavior to the other?

Thank you.
