Important Considerations: 

  1. Please consider your audience before replying.  Using Reply will reply to just the Sender.  Using Reply-All will reply to the Sender and the entire list.
  2. Please be considerate when replying and ensure that you aren't including e-mail addresses in your reply.  Many e-mail clients will include e-mail addresses in the body of the reply.  Please remove these before posting publicly.
