I've been trying to address this, am somewhat stymied by my own
inexperience in the area.

First, I've got a rewrite rule in /etc/exim.conf:

    *@navel    ${lookup{$1}lsearch{/etc/email-addresses}\
                                                    {$value}fail} bcfrF

/etc/email-addresses has:

    karsten         kmself@ix.netcom.com

I looked at several followups to this topic the last time it came up on
this list, the exim.conf mod was suggested, but I've already got it in
place.  Unless the flags are wrong.

I also tried looking at mail headers when responding to list mail.  
The Mail-Followup-To: header appears to be added after the user sends an

I could hardcode in my own MFT header within my .muttrc, but what I'd
prefer to specify is followups to list only, and only include this
header in response to list mails.  My understanding is that if I add a
"my_hdr" specification I'll be adding the header to all email I send,
and it *won't* specify the list I want to respond to, but merely my own
(hopefully correct) address.  Manually typing the header in for all mail
would be...tedious.   Disabling the header entirely might be preferable.
Anyone have a suggestion for this?  

Thanks again.
