Is it possible with mozilla thunderbird to do reply to list like some other
mailing list friendly email clients can do (such as sylpheed-claws).

I'm a Thunderbird user and I only have this problem on a few lists.  The
Debian lists are among those.

All the lists running on GNU Mailman (I'm surprised Debian doesn't use
this, GNU-lovers that they are) include a "Reply-To": header with the
mailing list address.  So in Thunderbird when you simply "reply" it goes
to the list.  If you "Reply to All" it goes to the list and anyone else
in the from/to/cc headers.

On the Debian lists, it's the exact opposite.

This has been discussed on this list, at length, in the past. Let's not
bring it up again.
