I'm doing just that.  I just hit 'r' for reply instead of 'f'.  That puts me
into my editor.  I change the address at the top from the poster's address
to debian-user@lists.debian.org.  Then I write and send.

Thanks much, Anita. I wrote a function in my .bashrc thats working pretty 
well, but will try that. (gotta run it through sed to prepend the >)

ldu () {

     echo "Enter Subject:" ;
     read NN ;
     mutt -F ~/.2muttrc debian-user@lists.debian.org -s "$NN" -i draft ;


Tried to pipe the articles, with |, to mutt but it hasn't  worked so far.
