Question

I have setup a list using GMS List Server. When a user replies to a message sent to the list it goes to the user rather than back to the list.

Answer

This is the default action of the list server in version 3. For some lists, this is exactly
what you want, however, for a discussion list you want the message to go back
to the list.

To do this, you will need to:

  1. Start the GMS List Server CPL.
  2. Select the list you wish to change.
  3. Press the “Message Editor” button.
  4. Press the “Edit” button for the “Header File”.
  5. Insert a single line into this file which looks like:

    -Reply-To:  (Name of list)
    

Version 6 of GMS Communication Server gives you an option in the GUI so you can decide where responses are returned to.
