with mutt it's nice. if you have $followup_to set, then mutt will
compare the To: address to all lists you told it about with $lists and
$subscribe. a $lists entry is a mailing list which you know of, but
which you haven't subscribed, so Mail-Followup-To will include your
address so you receive replies. a $subscribe'd mailing list (one that
mutt knows about through a $subscribe statement) causes
Mail-Followup-To to only include the list address.

if you also have $honor_followup_to set, then you have three keys in
mutt:

  r - replies to the author only
  g - replies to the author and the list
  L - replies to the list only iff you know about the list ($lists
    & $subscribe, and the author hasn't included his addy in the MFT
    header).

what else do you want? if you also have all your lists procmail'd to
a subfilder (like i read this list in =lists/debian/user), then set
this

folder-hook .     "bind index g group-reply ; bind pager g group-reply"
folder-hook lists "bind index g list-reply ; bind pager g list-reply"

and forget about L. just hit g, and it'll do everything automatically.
