Etiquette, part 2.

Please try to use "person wrote:" as your header and not outlook style "-----Original Message-----" + 4 lines of garbage. In Outlook 2010, File>Options>Mail>Replies and forwards:

When replying to a message: [Prefix each line of the original message |v]
Preface each line in a plain-text message with: [ > ]

Please don't cc people who are involved in the discussion. Discussion should be on the list and the list only. Cc'ing people who are involved results in them getting multiple copies, or only the copy that isn't to the list (depending on which thing is misconfigured). Neither of these states is healthy. It makes it easy for people to accidentally reply in private when they should be sending to the list. It also makes it easy for people to accidentally reply to the public because the last time they received something it was a personal message and they thought that the same would apply to the next message.  -- If people want to discuss things about Core Mobile, they can subscribe to the list, or read it via an archive service. If they're subscribed, they'll get an email whether or not you cc them. If they chose *not* to subscribe but read it via some other service, then your act of Cc'ing them is violating their preference not to get list discussion as email.
