Re: A new, but still tiresome, way to reply to messages - Trying to "reply to" messages, without success!
In answer to your question, and for other listers reading this, the fact that I am trying to reply to messages on the “digest” , using the “reply link” provided, may need to be repeated for clarification. Using ctrl-r works only if I were to be replying to a message that did not come as part of a “JFW digest”, i.e. came directly to me from another lister. And,I have tried ctrl-r to reply to sender from the “digest”; but, it did not work. Whereas, I usually have been trying to reply to specific messages within the “digest”, using the “reply ...” link which takes me to the website. Don’t worry; I will not repeat the long explanation that I sent out recently! :) :)
So, no, I was not replying to an individual - the “short answer”!
It’s really strange that I have absolutely no trouble “muting threads”, using the digest link for this and going to the website. It’s only a few clicks away.
As I say, what I am doing should work; but, it is frustrating for me to not be able to do something that I was able to do several months ago. I’ll just have to get over that, and use this “back-door” method for replying “to all”!
Also, I know that I can copy and paste a message sender’s e-mail address into the “To:” field in an e-mail message, do the same with the subject field and send my reply directly to that person, if that is the only person to whom I want to reply. However, I mostly reply “to all”.
So, thanks for all “replies”. If this does indeed end up in the “digest”, I will stick with this method. ... At least, it will have proven that it works - with much less work than with my last attempt.

That command is to reply directly to the sender. Is that what you were trying to do?
