Wow!

What great grandkids! Avery was perfect. Held up perfectly through it all.
Owen had a good time as well. Not much sibling rivalry at all! Nice job
guys.

Thank you for everything.

Don't email and USENET in the same tool!

Accidents will happen, if you do. Even Avery knows this.

Here's a list of software for USENET. Windows Mail for mail,
and something from this list for USENET (i.e. not Windows Mail
and not Windows Live Mail 15 either).

It proves nothing, as far as I'm concerned. Even if you use two
different programs for newsgroups and e-mail, most newsreaders permit
you to reply by e-mail or forward a message by e-mail, and invokes
your e-mail client, whatever it is, even it's a completely different,
unrelated program.

That's not the situation in question. This is an example of a private
email being sent to a public Usenet newsgroup. That can't happen unless
the email and news clients are combined.

Gravity doesn't. If you haven't set your mail server settings in
Gravity, and accidentally try to send an email, it just gives you an
error message.

I use Thunderbird as a newsreader program and Outlook 2007 as an email
program. Thunderbird is not set up with pop3 or smtp settings to my
email server and will not reply to any post by email. Because Outlook
cannot act as a newsreader I cannot post an email to a news group.

Yes, my error; I read the message too quickly. Thanks for the
correction. But I wouldn't say "that can't happen"; rather it's very
unlikely to happen.

There are others, all are better than Windows Mail in many ways.

Do you mean Windows Mail or Windows Live Mail? If you mean Windows
Live Mail, I'm with you almost entirely. I haven't tried every e-mail
program and newsreader, but I've tried a lot of them. And I've never
seen one that's anywhere near as bad as Windows Live Mail.

But I think Windows Mail is much better than Windows Live Mail.

I dunno. I use TBird, and I'd really have to work at it to send an
intended e-mail as a newsgroup posting.

Yes it is and it's much worse than any other email client.... I'd never
recommend an email client that encourages such awfulness as top posting
and HTML email....

Aw, who cares? So he made a mistake. I found it nice he enjoyed his
grandkids so much.

I had a "near miss" recently, in that I thought I'd clicked the "Reply"
button to a USENET posting, and after a couple minutes, happened to look
up at the header, and the reply was an email. If you're going to "dual-use"
the tool, look up at the header occasionally... :)

Yes, you can send a reply rather than a followup easily enough, since
the news part has both reply and followup buttons. However, the email
part doesn't have a post button ...

(I agree with the next post: I'm glad he enjoyed his grandkids.)

WLM can be set to reply-at-bottom, and to send email via plain text, so I
think those two examples would indicate user indifference or user ignorance.

I've not used WM, so I won't comment on that.

I am guessing that XS11E is cross that those aren't the defaults. And
from what I've read, the latest edition of WLM also doesn't use quote
characters, so regardless of which order it has the text in, you can't
immediately tell which is which.

(Actually, IMO, reply-at-bottom is only marginally better than
top-posting, if the text being replied to is long: a proper reply - or
followup - should snip most of the original text, leaving just the bits
being replied to - and put each reply next to [IMO below] the text it is
a reply/followup to.)

I've not used either (-:!
