If I receive a mail :

From: Bob

To: me, John, Paul

If I choose "reply to all", it looks like this

to: Bob

cc: John, Paul

Why cc ? isn't that supposed to look like this ? :

to: Bob, John, Paul

Change it so that:

  1. All recipients marked as To: in the original mail are placed in To: in the reply also. The sender of the original mail also gets in To:
  2. All recipients in the original mail that were marked CC, stay in CC.

That's how I see the thing too, but on the jolla, the recipients are moved to CC when I click reply to all (at least on 2 differents exchange accounts I tried.)

MS Outlook (2010&2013) behaves like this, it's more logical to me

I think this behavior is pretty standard, I just tested kmail (from KDE) and Icedove (relabeled Thunderbird), they both send "To" to the sender and "CC" to all recipient. This allow to easily recognize the original sender of the mail.

well not standard in outlook, neither in exchange, nor in the windows mail app, nor on the N9...

Not in Thunderbird either. Standard in Thunderbird is all in To: stay in To: all in CC: stay in CC
