We have noticed that the “Reply to All” functionality results in unnecessary inbox clutter. Beginning Thursday we will eliminate this function, allowing you to reply only to the sender. Responders who want to copy all can do so by selecting the names or using a distribution list.
Eliminating the “Reply to All” function will:
• Require us to copy only those who need to be involved in an e-mail conversation
• Reduce non-essential messages in mailboxes, freeing up our time as well as server space
I almost think this must be an early April Fool’s joke. I see what they are getting at, and I’ve certainly seen many reply-all errors (ranging from annoying to disastrous), but it is a very useful feature. How about making it less easy to access (and less likely to accidentally access)?
