Nah, you're just another victim of the broken Reply-To setting in this
list, that causes both replies and follow-ups to go to the list. :-/
Not quite. As opposed to other mailing list managers Mailman _does the right
thing_ i.e. not overriding the Reply-To header that your MUA set (but adding
the list address to the header).
A quick usefull example: I am subscribed to a list, I post an urgent issue but
I want the reply to go to some other email address (that uses an SMS gateway
so I'll receive the reply on my cellphone). The fact that the SMS service I
use is not free I do not want to receive all the list traffic, but only the
part that covers my issue. If I want to do this I set the Reply-To header to
user(a)sms-gateway.com and wait...
It's actually a matter of choice: for the initial poster - if he wants to set
the Reply-To header or not and to you (the one who reply) - if you want to
keep his personal email address as a recipient or not. But again: Mailman
does the _right thing_.
