I am using Gmail webmail in Safari and Chrome on a Mac. Often I want to send a new message to all the same people as in an old email in my inbox. My workflow for this is as following:
- find an old email, and click
- copy everything in
to:and paste to new message
from:and paste to new message
- find my own address and delete it
This workflow is very tedious, and there is a high risk that I do something wrong when copying the recipients. Is there a better way? -some shortcut or something that allows me to use
Reply to all as a way to make a new message to all.
It has been suggested to use
Reply to all and then edit the subject. The problem with that is that the email does not lose its connection to the previous thread. I have sent a test to myself and looking at the source(
Show original), I can see the ID of the previous thread under
In-Reply-To:. Maybe I should not worry about this!? -or maybe there are e-mail clients, that sort the treads from these pieces of information, and not just the subject!?
Example: By replying to a message, and sending it to myself, the source looks like this:
...QYT_Q@... is the ID of the message, that I made the reply to.
