In my old MM 2 lists I used the second form (without "lists") and I
still want to use that form with MM 3.

Are there any reasons why I shouldn't use the second form?

In my opinion, the second form may be easier for inexperienced mailing
list users, but, on the other hand, the first form makes it a bit
clearer that the addressee is a list, not an individual.

Another factor may be the actual list name, e.g.,

  grads-list at mycollege.org


  grads at mycollege.org

or other forms of a list name.

I would appreciate any comments on your real-world experiences and how
you prefer to handle such list naming.

Best regards,
