The point is, you may _not_ be able to send me a private

address goes to an account I can't read, then you need to
see _my_ Reply-To header, _not_ the list address, in order
to send me a private email.

That's why the configuration of this list is correct.
Hi William,

I am afraid I have to disagree.
The point of the list is not to sent private messages to one another, it is to send the messages to a group of subscribers about a common topic. If subscribers want to sent each other private messages then there is nothing stopping them 'Replying to all' and editing out the mailing list address.

Setting the 'Reply to' to the list address keeps those interested in the commin topic informed about each others views/opinions. Should I dislike your opinion, and as this forum is a list and the topic I would like to discuss with you is not relevant to the group, then I can discuss it with you privately via private email.

As it stands, unfortunately, we are all using this list without payment for our own enrichment and therefore have to gratfully accept what the list-owner supplies.
