Exactly, Don.... this is the issue in a nutshell... you have 
to remember. That is something that us senior citizens are 
not too good at!

Just look at all of the dupes we get from AM Radio and 
on Glowbugs!

It's not a huge issue, but Outlook does put that limitation on 
us because it only gives two choices - REPLY or 
REPLY-ALL.
So it is extra work for one Outlook user to delete the 
excess addresses on one end, OR extra work to delete 
the excess messages for several hundred people on 
the other end, hi hi.
