Can be done either way...

You might have two distinct subnets using 192.168.0.x and 192.168.1.x,
for instance, so you would use as the netmask to determine
the difference between local and remote networks (i.e. what has to go
through the gateway, and what doesn't).

You might have a huge network which uses to,
or addresses throughout that range, even if you don't use every possible
address in that range, so you'd use to put them all on the
same network.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
