ok. I'll read the help and see what can I come up with...
but I think you are overreacting a bit here, I already spent half a day trying to figure out why kmail sets reply-to to one of my other addresses, and I was asking for help from somebody who run into this before and knows the solution...If there's a way of making it work, I'll figure it out, but thats about linux,namely community sharing of each other's experiences...

PS I'm sure that if my suse mailing list were the only address in kmail, it would have worked...

Because many people use the help functions and configure their mailers
correctly. I've found that some people get jittery w/ any software they
use under Linux just because it's running on Linux...no matter how point
and clicky it is. This is not a dis on the guy who wrote previously.
It's just a fact. People think it's SO different..but that's the point
of Kmail and many other KDE or even Gnome programs. It's made to work
and feel the same. I've configured 30-40 different email clients
...textbased and GUI under 7-8 different OS's..it's all the same. It just
takes reading the documentation whether it be a Help menu or a textfile.
If people think that computers and software should be as dumbed down as
to cater to the "blinking VCR at 12:00" people. They will get software
like IIS which is full of holes and really doesn't work as well as it
should.
