[Mailman-Users] Newsreader access.

Hi, Mark.

In the case you describe the server would send posts to the newsgroups and readers would access these newsgroups to see the posts. So posts are sent to the list using each list's e-mail address and then 'copied' to the newsserver. What happens when readers wish to reply to what they read on their newsreaders ? Would they send their reply to the newsgroup or have to send their reply to the list itself using the list's e-mail address ? This part is not very clear to me.

Thank you in advance,
