I looked at the headers, and there is no Reply-To header in the e-mail I
received from the list. An entire page of headers, but not that one.
Even if Reply-To was a header, it would be too much to honor it unless
my e-mailer honored it automatically (perhaps it does). Because some
lists to which I subscribe automatically reply to the lists, and some
automatically reply to the original sender, and I cannot remember which
is which. I know asking any particular list to change is not worth the
trouble; each list has its own policy and unwilling to change. I try to
remember which is which. It is sometimes suggested to hit Reply-All, but
this results in the original poster's getting two replies. I
particularly hate this method as I then reply to which ever one I get
first, usually direct to the author, thinking he wants a private reply
since he sent it to me privately. Then a little later I get one from the
list, and it is usually too much trouble to send another reply to the
list. I wish all lists were set up so a reply to a message from the list
went back to the list, but there is no point asking that from a list
that does things another way.
