When responding to an email message, think for a minute about who should get your response. If the original message was sent to a large group of people or an email alias, do you really want everyone to see your response, or do you really just want to respond to the sender? In general, it is polite to prevent your response from going to those who have no need to see it and no interest in it.

Some email clients, like Mulberry, automatically respond to everyone who received the orginal message unless you take action to prevent this. In Mulberry, after you hit the respond key, a box pops up with a list of recipients. Any recipient with a red check will receive your response. Click on the red check to remove the recipient from the list of people to receive your response.
