I often see posts such as this one where we are invited to reply do the
poster directly, by email.
I use MS Outlook, and the only return address I ever see is the piclist
itself.
Is this a case of the original poster forgetting to include his/her email
address, or is
there some other way for me to get it?

BTW, Rock, I would like to have the information.
My email address is:  fosterspamKILLspamadastran.com

Thanks!

The PICLIST L-Soft mail processor inserts a Reply-To:
which overrides the From: address when your mailer
replies. In Outlook, the only way I know to "easily"
do this is to

  (a) open the message you want to reply to (it isn't
      enough to "preview" in the main Outlook window)
  (b) Select the text in the From field (even though
      it doesn't appear to be selectable text, it is,
      and it will select the address you want, not
      the text name as shown)
  (c) Right-click copy, Cntl-C or Edit... Copy to get
      the address into the clipboard,
  (d) Click the Reply button
  (e) select the piclist address in the To: field --
      the whole thing should select on a single click,
  (f) Right-click paste, Cntl-V or Edit... Paste.

At that point, you should have a reply to the original
poster, not the PICLIST.

This is why I always set my Reply-To: to myself; I
occasionally get messages intended for the list,
but I think it's better than having private replies
go to the list. One can always reply to the list
from my messages by doing a reply-to-all or group
reply.

Double click to open the message in its own window, right click on the email
address after "on behalf of" in the from field, and select "copy" then hit
reply and right click in the to field and hit paste.

People will tell you to use "Reply to all" rather than "Reply" but that
don't work for me with piclist messages.

1. Open the message
2. Click View then Options
3. Look in the text box at the bottom of the dialog box, the last "from:"
field should be the one you want.

 No, as that's virtually impossible.

 There probably is.  Play with some settings, if you can find any.  If
not, you just have to decide - do you want everything to look pretty, or
do you want to get some work done?

 I know this "M$ software" theme is getting pretty well-worn, but when
you really get down to the nitty-gritty, that's just how it is!

... In which case the PICList would discard the post as not coming from
a SUBSCRIBER to the PICList (A prerequisite for posting to the list!)

It's a MS Exchange software problem, Netscape doesn't have this problem
(for example).
