[IP] To e-mail privately
I've been out for a while, so I've got a LOT of catching up to do. I
did see the post about someone trying to e-mail someone personally, but not
being able to find their address, & Sam's follow-up on finding it on the
webpage. As someone who is operating on one of the world's slowest systems
(or so it seems at times), I wanted to offer another possible option with less
steps & waiting time involved. As I am not the "techexpert"
here, I do not know if this works for everyone's e-mail system...but it's worth
When I want to respond to a posting, I hit "reply to author",
& the following appears, followed by the text of the original post - I
deleted that part, for this example.
I simply click on the address after
"From:", which usually allows me to begin a new message to be sent
directly to that address, that of the original poster. If for some reason
this does not happen (sometimes the mysteries of this machine are completely
beyond me), then I highlight & copy the address, close up the reply I had
thus started to cancel it, then begin "new message" & paste in the
address I have copied to be the "To:"
Hope this helps!
