I may be a small minority, but I view the web page at...
http://www.unicom.com/pw/reply-to-harmful.html as being harmfull. The
maintainer of this list seems to have accepted Chip Rosenthal's advice,
so I had to fight it off. Here's my secret, in my procmail filter...
* ^X-Mailing-List: .*firstname.lastname@example.org
* !^Reply-To: debian-user@lists\.debian\.org
| formail -i "Reply-To: email@example.com (Debian-user list)"
This appends a Reply-To: that undoes the damage caused by accepting,
Chip's advice. This way, I can hit "r" when reading my "Debian-User"
folder just like with my "Inbox" folder. The email came to me from the
list, and "r" should damn well reply to the list.
