Somebody from another mailinglist has the perfect answer for your mail so here 
it is:

Please do *not* start a new question by replying to an old one as this 
several problems:
1) most email software will correctly think that your email is a response to
the email you are "replying" to, and will indicate this by displaying your
email as a child of the original email
2) because of this, people not interested in the original email may ignore
your question
3) people may think that the original email has a reply(yours) so that 
they do
not have to give it a reply
So in conclusion, more people will read your email if it looks like the 
of a new thread rather than the reply to an old one.

Regards, and welcome tho this list

The only dumb question is the one omitted

De enige domme vraag is degene die niet gesteld wordt
