It may depend on how you are set up for receiving mail from the group.
I'm set to 'no mail' and view postings via the hort.net archives. In
order to reply to a specific post like I am doing now, I have to first
log on to Yahoo and go to the Yahoo archives. After locating the
message and opening it, then the option for replying is available. If
you receive mail directly in your mailbox, then simply doing an email
reply works. If you are set to 'no mail' you could, alternativly just
re the subject line and send the mail. Because of the manner I use the
archives, I go to the trouble to reply directly. It keeps the thread
option in the archives neater and easier to use.
