Mutt's the best about honoring the Mail-Followup-To header; good choice.

'g' in my version of mutt (1.5.6) makes it send to the list *and* the

'L' however, sends to just the list. It may not seem straight-forward at
first, but that's why there's the mutt users manual, so you don't have
to guess at these things or learn them on your own. The mutt manual is
normally bound to the F1 key in mutt.

To learn more about the reply-to-list feature, do a search in the mutt
manual on "list-reply" and read section 3.10 Mailing Lists.
