If you are using Outlook 97 or Outlook 98 and you select the Option toolbar button when you compose a message, and then designate another user as the recipient for any replies, that recipient will be ignored, and the replies will be sent back to you if the person responding to the message is using the Outlook Web Access client. This does not occur if the person responding is using an Outlook client.
