Erm - how's that not user error? What you've learnt is obviously wrong. Relearn
how to use your MUA efficiently.

So, change your software configuration. The list software is doing the correct
thing, the user agent is obviously your failing point here - so, either use a
different MUA or configure your current MUA to do what you expect it to.

BTW, MUAs are software too!
