I confess I've been playing catch-up, so I may have missed this 
(although I'll put in a plug here for Eudora 6 Beta's ability to 
present a summary of a conversation with all the quoted text 
elided--incredibly useful).

I've seen two issues going by on C/R.  One is where the response goes 
(normal email reply, or delivery notification reply).  And the other 
is dealing with mailing lists.

My gut says that C/R is a delivery notification.  But the problem is 
more complicated.

I'm not so worried about mailing lists.  What worries me is what 
happens when Amazon sends me an out-of-stock notice and I send a C/R 
to the envelope from.  What are the odds that it's going to be 
treated as a bounce, and I get taken off their list?

Commercial "transactional" email worries me more than mailing lists. 
It's not just that the mail's more critical, but updating it to some 
new standard is harder.  Those systems are largely homegrown, whereas 
lists tend to use standard software and/or services.  Lists are 
easier to change to a new standard.

Thoughts?

I'm not sure which upsets me more: that people are so unwilling to accept
responsibility for their own actions, or that they are so eager to regulate
everyone else's.
