With the advancement of the PM features, and the easy ability to send the same PM to multiple people, I would like to see the ability to reply to all.

If someone's suggested this previously, my apologies.  I could definitely use it (ask the Project Managers, I just sent them a PM tonight, and had to search for each name individually in order to do so).

I don't understand how the "reply to all" works, I'm sorry if this is supposed to be common knowledge (^^;)

Once would assume the same way as in an email thats sent to multiple recipients, when you hit reply to all, it replies to the sender and all the other people in the too field. Currently theres only an option to reply to sender.

Reply To All is definitely handy. Another handy feature might be to be able to defiine "PM Lists", similar to a mailing list where you can group names under a common heading, and then just send it to that "list" and have it sent to everyone that you put on that list...

That's a real shame  :'(
It would be a really useful feature as it mimics regular email

I guess some kind soul couldn't write a hack/script?
 I'm finding myself saying "I really need this feature"  :D

Here here I say for this feature.

I also like the idea of a "mailing list".

I wonder how hard it would be to code a mod for this.

Bit disappointed not to see more than a "might happen, sounds nice"; aren't there developers around reading these boards? I mean, this sounds like a must-have feature, and it's been requested quite a while ago.

I just started looking through the code for 1.0.5 and in InstantMessage.php there is a section about replying to all.  Now I'm not familiar with php so it may be a struggle for me to mod it but wanted to point it out for someone more familiar.

So maybe it's close to being implemented.
