Hi Michael,

        Thanks. So here is an explanation, a statement, some pro and con etc.

thanks a lot!

Interesting, my mileage indeed does vary here. ;-) We have a few internal lists with experts and without reply-to-mangling, and every once in a while, a mail dedicated to the list only reaches the original poster, which is odd. :)

What we do on our public lists is the following:

1. We remove any existing Reply-To-header.
2. We set the Reply-To-header to the list.

Would you like to avoid both? Or would simply removing #1 do? That, in a nutshell, would mean:

1. If you simply send a message to the list, the Reply-To gets fixed to the list, i.e. replies are always sent to the list.

2. If you set a Reply-To, this will be preserved, but the list will be *added* to the current Reply-To-header.

Would that do?
