Thanks for trying to make this procedure clear to me, Denis. I'm still finding it not intuitively obvious, so I have to work hard and keep my fingers crossed until it becomes second nature, as it is for me with Listservs.
It's worth the effort. : -) Happy New Year.
Dear Lavinia, I am glad your post found its way, I fail to comprehend your confusion, there is a big fat
button on the top left corner of the message board, as you have figured it out already, all you need is to click on it and you are set to post your answer.
If you want to quote a message in your post, all you do is click on
at the top right of the message, and the original message will appear in your post highlighted, like your quote above.
Hope this helps.
