Re: Sending a private message using Thunderbird

Gene
 

A similar method to what I described in my first message does work with Windows Live Mail.  I don’t use Outlook but it would be interesting to know if a similar method works in that program.
 
In Windows Live Mail, open the message and shift tab until you get to a button that says something like contact’s name and then reads the e-mail address.
Open the context menu, down arrow to send message to and press enter.
A blank message will be created with the address in the from line.  No modifications are necessary.
 
I believe at times, when you press enter on send message to, you may be in a submenu with choices.  Choose the one that is appropriate.  I think one of the choices is private, but I do this so seldom that I’m not sure.  I believe that is the right choice.

Here is an important correction.  The method I described won’t work on many lists.  It needs to be modified.  The method I described before may work on some lists, but not on Groups.io lists.  That is for technical reasons the list serve uses to ensure reliable delivery of mail to people using certain providers.
 
Here is the way that will work.
New steps start on new lines.
Open the message.
Shift tab once.
Tab once.
You are now on the from line.
Open the context menu. 
Down arrow to the item that says something like compose message to and press enter.
A new message will be created and you will be on the subject line.
Shiftt tab to the to line and left arrow once.  Then press enter.
You can now edit the address.
Press home.
Right arrow until you get to the less than sign. 
Hold shift and press home again.  Then press delete.
Right arrow to the equals sign.  Then right arrow one more time.
Backspace once to remove the equals sign. 
Type the at sign.
Then right arrow to the end of the proper e-mail address.  In my case, it would be gmail.com.
There is more after the correct proper address.  Delete it. 
If you right arrow once beyond the end of the proper e-mail address, you will be on another at sign. 
Use shift end then press delete.
You now have the correct address with nothing extraneous.
This may sound a bit complex and cumbersome but if you try it a few times, you will see that it isn’t bad even though it’s a little cumbersome.
If you are practicing, to remove the practice message, use alt f4 then tab once and press the space bar.

Since the topic of how to send private messages to list members has come up, I did a little experimentation and I found what may well be the easiest way if you are using Thunderbird.  Do the following:
Open the message from the person you want to reply to.
Shift tab once.  You will either be on a link or you will hear nothing.
Either way, tab once.
You are on the from line.
Open the context menu.
You will see many items.
Press enter on the item that says something like send message to.
This will open a new message with the person’s address in the to line and you will be on the subject line.

Re: how to get access to an IPad

What e-mail program are you using.  Someone can tell you how to write to people offlist. 
 
Methods such as you are using often don’t work.  Perhaps on some lists, they might but on lists I’ve been on, which I think represent the majority in terms of how they are set up, such techniques don’t.  But there are reliable ways to do this.
