No, it definitely doesn't brake lists! Posters who choose one of those
broken clients (regarding mailing list usage) will have to fiddle with
reply-to all and mangling the posters address - their problem.

at least once a week, I even get mislead mails from one of our admins, who I think of being technically very experienced. The admin lists doesn't have reply-to mangling, and lots of content is missing on the list, because people always reply to me directly. Especially our admins have been bugging me to turn on reply-to-mangling on that list... weird world. :-)

I have seen users of mutt, Google Mail and a few other mail clients complaining.

I vote for all lists, because the above is valid for all of them. But
well, I admit as long as we lead unexperienced users looking for support
on a mailing list (which I consider not beeing a good solution), we
should think about making that one an exception (and thus making life
harder for those *giving* support).

My take would be to use one of the more prominent lists to try out the results - preferably users@, or in case we want to exclude that list, something like discuss@ could be a good starter.

In case pure chaos arises, we need to rethink the strategy, in case things work out well, we might adapt that for other lists.

What do you think?
