I have seen that Outlook allows you to "Answer everyone" when you have received an e-mail sended from a person to many people. I would like to do the same with Lotus Notes. Is it posible?

1. In the mail db copy and paste the "reply with history" form.
2. Rename the form to "Reply to All"
3. Go to the sendTo field and in the default value of that field enter the following formula,

@Replace(@Name([CN];InheritedFrom) : @Name([CN];InheritedSendTo);@Name([CN];@UserName);"")

4. Save the form.

Now, you can select the document to which you want to reply all, go to create menu and use "Reply To All"

Good Luck !!!


PS: Make sure you dont allow the template to refresh the design of this form.

Oops just..missed by seconds...I posted this as an answer but by the time paebdb got it. Anyways....

Well its a nice solution, but why ? There is a Reply to all button.
Hi Paebdb,

This can be done with one single action from the view itself right ???

Thats why I suggested this.
Otherwise, Nothing special...
Trying to be more techy huh ?



Really good and quick Paebdb. It is not the first time you solve me a problem.
