    Hi Pete,

    As you say above, you send an email to a group and the message goes to all in that Group. In my case that has not been working since the earllier KDE3, or was it early versions of KDE4. Similarly, for years I have been able to reply to list messages in text mode without a problem...that is until this last version of Kmail.

    It is quite possible that there is some problem in my current installation which may be the basis for these issues, although this machine was recently re-installed with opensuse on a new drive.. However, I have two other PC's running with slightly different configurations and versions of suse, kde & kmail we have similar issues with Kmail on each.

    Unfortunately, it is crunch time and Kmail is to be replaced in the next few days for at least the foreseeable future. Thank you for your comments,but unfortunately, if it is a problem just with my configuration, I cannot spend any more time trying to get it functioning, when I know there are alternatives that will "just work" now.

    I ran into the problem you describe in 11.4. It was fixed there, did not
    exit in 12.1 for me, and kmail2 in 12.2 won't let me create a list using
    group. I have sine switched to seamonkey mail and it works fine for
    distribution lists.

    I have about given up hope for kmail, many regressions come back with
    each new release.

    I have narrowed my choice to Seamonkey or Thunderbird, although I am wary of recent reports on the future of Thunderbird. I was looking ar claws-mail but had trouble with imap access to local Maildir folders (we use a local postfix/Dovecot server and all mail is gathered by fetchmail). Claws has been around for a long time but it seems that this Maildir problem would be the stopper.

    Thanks for your comments.
