I recently noticed that while replying to an email in google apps (or gmail for that matter) it wasn’t defaulting to Reply All – despite me enabling this lab.
Upon further inspection, I noticed this was no longer an option in the Labs.
Fearing that it had been removed altogether, I had a look over the General settings tab, and found that it had graduated from a ‘Lab’ to an actual feature:
This was also confirmed by this post
So, why wasn’t it selecting ‘Reply All’
The answer lies in the fact that I rely heavily on keyboard shortcuts
I saw that Reply had the shortcut ‘r’
but Reply all was ‘a’
Now, I only ever use ‘r’ to reply, and in 90% of cases, I actually want to reply all, so I set my Reply all option to be a or r
Now, if I hit ‘r’ by default, the reply is to all participants
