This isn't as transparent as it might be since the SuSE list mails have no REPLY-TO header!

So no big deal if your mail user agent (refered as MUA herein after
featureless to understand if the mail is coming from a mailing list then
do your self a favour and create one yourself

put the following in your $/.procmailrc and solve the problem

# suse fix so that replies go to the list and not to the person.
^X-Mailinglist: suse-linux-e
| formail -bfi "Reply-To: SLE <suse-linux-e@xxxxxxxx>"

Or use the feature of your MUA hit shift+l for mutt don't recall the one for Kmail but I do remember it has one

"In order to solve the problems people should not be in the same mindset
that created the problem"
