Other easy ways of starting a new thread

  kmail: go to the folder settings and checkmark "this folder contains a 
mailing list", then enter the posting address in the box provided.  From then 
on, MIDDLE-CLICKING the folder name in the tree automatically brings up a new 
message already addressed properly

  outlook: [from my "equal time for windows users" grabbag] umm... lemme seee 
here -- I found this out once...  oh, yeah: you can define a "button" on your 
toolbar and give it an action of "create a new message for..." and 
pre-address it.  It isn't straightforward, but then, it's microsoft, so why 
should they care? ;)

Seriously, though, between these two examples, it should be fairly easy to 
figure out how to "quickly" create a brand new message without any previous 
linkages for whatever e-mail client you are using.  Those of you silly enough 
to actually like and use "web" based e-mail clients, well, sorry I don't 
think there is an easy way...
