Okay do you mean the button "Send mail to bug Assignees"?
In my query some of the following would get mail: Me, A. Timar, Joel...

So, what should we do? I was able to display the e-mail of the reporter,
but you won't get me to send 200 mails....
A button "Send mail to the reporter and everyone who is interested in
this bug" would be nice ;) [Sorry for sarcasm]
BTW: I have a improved query for LT Neeedinfo bugs: Currently 393
