Its impossible to set
a reply to if the list adds one. The mailinglist software has to remove
all reply-to headers first and the insert the list one. So if i want
answers only to some mailbox (there are tons of reasons to do so)
reply-to munging makes this impossible.
Mailman, at least, *adds* a Reply-to header -- it does not remove/munge existing
headers. So if an original post includes a Reply-to header and the Mailman list
server is configured for "Reply to List" then what the list subscribers
includes both Reply-to headers.
Another reason to hate mailman 8) From RFC 2822:
The following table indicates limits on the number of times each field
may occur in a message header as well as any special limitations on the
use of those fields.
Field Min number Max number
reply-to 0 1
