from your email headers, i see

you're using MOZILLA to read (or at least SEND) email.

your email (where the message originated) is dvanbalen@jam.rr.com

this message came through the debian mailing list

> Reply-To: debian-user@lists.debian.org             
and the debian list-manager added a reply-to address: debian-user

not being familiar with mozilla email features (can you see which
client email software i use?) i'd say that yuor REPLY button
addresses its reply mail to the FROM field instead of to the
REPLY-TO field.

i can choose which way to reply:

	r -> goes to original emailer
	L -> goes to list/group
	g -> goes to both (original sender, and list)

surely mozilla has a similar feature...? if it knows to detect
the X-MAILING-LIST header it should know to differentiate between
the list address and the sender address.

does a brain cell think?
