I originally sent this to Iosef in response to his post, but I meant
it to go to the list as well. Hopefully this will be helpful to those
using gmail on our list:

Hi Iosef et al... Just a few notes regarding gmail

Yes, you're correct, this is a less convenient, but it's all there in
gmail. For example, in your message below:

To see all the address fields, move the mouse to the right of the To:
field, and you will see a little box with a down pointing arrow. Left
click on the arrow, and it brings up:

In the top bar of the 'reply box', you will see a 'flying arrow' at
the left. Mouse over it, and it says 'Type of response'; click and it
displays the following choices:

Reply to Iosef vaisman
Reply to All
Edit subject
Pop out reply (whatever that means)

At the bottom of the Reply box on the same line as the 'Send' button,
over to the right is another down pointing arrow. Mouse over it and
you get 'More options'. Left click and you can toggle
plain text mode (all further messages you write will be in plain text
until you uncheck 'plain text').

Less than delightfully easy to use, but I guess one gets used to it.


p.s. Just for completeness for other gmail users...
Just to the right of the time at the top of the received message are
the Reply options along with other options. The 'Show Original' option
will give all the headers along with the entire original message.

And: At the very bottom of the Reply box, there's something like [...]
in grey. If you click on that it will include the message you're
replying to.
