I'd like to set up an list with Mojo Mail in which replies would go only to the person originating the message.

For example -- if a group of people were on the list server and a person named John sent a message to the group that there was a party at his house, anyone replying to that email would have their replies automatically directed to John.

It would seem that this should be a distribution list, but that gives you no control over who is allowed to post to the list, right? I don't want people outside the group posting to the group. Can I do this?

I understand that, and I have it set up.

My problem is that I only see TWO options on the list regarding replies:

Replies go to the whole group or...
Replies go to the list owner

I want replies to go to the sender of the post.

I know that I COULD use a distribution email address for this, but that would not prevent non-registered people from sending emails to the list.

Any ideas?

You might want to try out Mailman (http://list.org) - I use it and it has an option that makes replies go to the actual individual and not back to the list.

The only problem is that you would need to know how to use SSH since you need to install it yourself. Not too hard, but it does require a little extra maintaining too (when compared to Mojo Mail).
