We’ve recently made some enhancements to the email footer that is added to every email sent over Gaggle Mail. The default footer now includes the email address of the original sender of the message and a link to reply specifically to the sender.
The default configuration for a Gaggle Mail email group is that replies go back to the group, this is ideal for encouraging group discussion and sharing information. However sometimes it can be preferable to just reply to specific person who sent the message and having a reply to link in the footer makes this super easy.
The sender address and reply to link only appear for groups which are configured for replies to go to the group address since this isn’t required when the reply address is already set as the original sender.
You have always been able to customize the footer of messages sent over Gaggle Mail so if you’d prefer not to include the sender information then it’s really easy just to set your own footer. You can also include the original sender and a reply to link in a custom footer using the replacement tags described here.
We’ve also changed footers to use HTML links where appropriate which gives them a cleaner look.
