Evidently, the list manager employed here strips off any "Reply-To:"
header and then fails to replace it with one that points to the list.
Fortunately, not all mailing lists are configured in a similar manner.

Fortunately, using claws-mail, I am able to circumvent that problem (in

Please do not ignore the Reply-To header.
