Click on "Compose Mail" located at the top left quadrant of the
browser page [1].
Compose your posting, enter mail id of mailing list, review your post
and click on the "Send" button.

See above - It is also called hijacking a thread.  Most members may
tend to to ignore such messages.  If OP does not have the time to
compose a new message for his/her query why should anyone else give
them any time?
[1]  caveat it requires a little effort to scroll to the top of the
page and move your mouse pointer to click on it.
