The solution to this is very simple. Have the
mailing list manager to add a Reply-To: header
on each messages.

I've done this on few of the lists I manage, and since
then, nobody sends double-messages.

But, probably, mailman is too stupid to have such
kind of options (I use (and maintain in Debian) MLMMJ,
which is used by big distros like Gentoo and SUSE).


P.S: I know that the list manager adding a Reply-To:
header breaks the RFC, and people setting-it up
explicitly on their mail client, but it works very well...
