In addition to this, I feel it’s important to add that these are Outlook commands, not JAWS commands…so they will work, regardless of whether JAWS, another screen-reader, or no screen-reader at all is present. It’s good to know this sort of thing. Yes, JAWS has some commands that will get you to certain things on your pC faster, but in general, most of the commands that don’t simly cause your screen-reader to 8read* something, are Windows or programme-specific commands.

Depending on how a list is set up, usually control r will reply to the sender and everyone else will see the reply too. However, say you send an e-mail to your grandmother, your father and brother and your brother answers, if you press control r than only your brother will see your reply but if you press alt l or control shift r it will send your answer to everyone.
On this Jaws list control r allows everyone to see your reply.
I’m sure someone will shoot me down if I’m wrong!
What’s the difference between reply and reply to all?
I just use alt + R to reply to the sender and ctrl + shift + R to reply to all.
I just tried that command I get cannot retrieve senders address.
Try Insert + shift + r to generate a reply directly to the sender of a list post. I'm not sure it works with all lists but I've had success with it on many of the groups.io lists.
I know there is such a command, because I’ve used it. Many times, when I hit CTRL+R to reply to an individual sender, the address is a list rather than the original sender of the message. What’s the JAWS command to do this? I know the JAWS key is involved, but I can’t remember what it is anymore.
Thanks in advance for the help.
