Replying to e-mail problems.

When I attempt to Reply to All (or Reply To All With History) to an e-mail, my e-mail address appears in the TO: or CC: field. Any ideas why and is there a setting to stop this? I'm using Notes R5.05 client on a Win95 machine.

This error was re-introduced in R5.0.2 and should be fixed in R5.0.3 and higher.
What version are you using ?
If it's lower then 5.0.3 consider upgrading to a higher release.
Incremental installers can be found at the following URL on :
Just download the appropriate installer and run it.

This is a known problem and there is still no solution.
Lotus is looking for the right fix as you can see below.

If a Notes 5.x message contains a Sent By field that is identical to the From field, a Reply to All results in the sender's name in the To field as well as the CC field.


This issue has been reported to Lotus Quality Engineering and is under investigation. It was originally reported as being addressed in Notes 5.0.2b and 5.0.3. However, this is incorrect. A fix is still being researched.
