When to Reply Just to the Author

If you have words of appreciation or acknowledgement (such as "thanks for sharing", "great resource") it is best to reply just to the author. You many also want to reply just to the author if what you have to share isn't as useful for our whole forum to see (for example "we do that in our town too"). Click the little down arrow to access the reply to author feature.

When replying via your email and you do not want to reply to all make sure is not in the address line.
