Thanks for your mail. In Outlook Express, the reply-to field is not visible.
It's been an accident waiting to happen for a long while. If I was setting
up a mailing list like this I would set it up so the reply-to field is just

I am not surprised that there are some cooks. The problem was not finished.
I was looking for support to analyze it. I can't even get it to run a) in a

didn't let them run to completion. I still have some design room in this

Thanks very much,

It's simple: Reply-to field of the message is "retros at janko.at".

b, c, and d are cooked. You can test this with Natch, it'll try to solve the
thing in the -exact- number of moves you typed.
