Well hang on.. surely it's legal protocol-wise for witchy to put the
reply-to field in the header for email that he sends, even though the
from: field is also present and valid?

Isn't it a little quirky for the list software to append to any existing
reply-to field rather than overwriting it? (which for a mailing list
might seem more sensible).

If the list software is set to always overwrite any reply-to field then
this would solve this particular problem, and for any future instances -
it's bound to crop up again at some point.

witchy: you didn't ever run any kind of ISP's setup software on the
machine from which you read mail do you? I've seen them bugger about
with email settings something chronic before if you're using one of the
MS clients to read mail.

(Curiously in Evolution if I reply to witchy's posts it goes to both him
and the list by default. If I just say "reply to list" then it just goes
to the list as expected. A feature that works... even though it isn't
too useful :)
