That is correct. Unless you KNOW for sure that Tom is ok with you posting 
his reply to the list, you shouldn't do it.

What Tom is telling you might be for your eyes only and he doesn't want to 
share it with the rest of the world, and you might not realise it.

The correct way of handling this is to reply to your own email to the list 
and supply the new information (if you feel it's not a secret). Then at 
least the world won't know who said it to you.
