non ho letto i mesgs precedenti, ma riporto cosa dice la config di mailman:
Where are replies to list messages directed? Poster is strongly
recommended for most mailing lists.

reply_goes_to_list (general): Where are replies to list messages directed?
Poster is strongly recommended for most mailing lists.

This option controls what Mailman does to the Reply-To: header in messages
flowing through this mailing list. When set to Poster, no Reply-To: header
is added by Mailman, although if one is present in the original message, it
is not stripped. Setting this value to either This list or Explicit address
causes Mailman to insert a specific Reply-To: header in all messages,
overriding the header in the original message if necessary (Explicit address
inserts the value of reply_to_address).

There are many reasons not to introduce or override the Reply-To: header.
One is that some posters depend on their own Reply-To: settings to convey
their valid return address. Another is that modifying Reply-To: makes it
much more difficult to send private replies. See eply-To' Munging
Considered Harmful for a general discussion of this issue. See Reply-To
Munging Considered Useful for a dissenting opinion.

Some mailing lists have restricted posting privileges, with a parallel list
devoted to discussions. Examples are atches' or heckin' lists, where
software changes are posted by a revision control system, but discussion
about the changes occurs on a developers mailing list. To support these
types of mailing lists, select Explicit address and set the Reply-To:
address below to point to the parallel list.
