Replying to Messages in the Mailing List Archives

Discussion of Spectrum takes place on mailing lists.

You may want to reply to a mailing list message that you don’t have a copy of in your mail client, because you aren’t subscribed to the list, or because you subscribed after the message was sent.

To do this, find the message you want to reply to in the public-inbox list archives, click on the "reply" link at the bottom of the message, then click the "mbox" link. Save the result to a file, then open it in your mail client. This should import the message and allow you to reply to it as normal. Remember to Reply All so that the masseg is sent to the mailing list and not just to the person you’re replying to.
