When I used Thunderbird, I had to either "reply all" and remove the private
address, or "reply" and then type in the list address. Using KMail (which
I recommend highly, by the way), when I reply to a list message, it goes to
the list. If I reply to a private message, it goes to the private address.

If you are using Thunderbird one needs (if required that is) to amend a
control line in the Config Editor which will cause a reply to a list be
only addressed to the list and without any CCs.

There is a perfectly good Thunderbird Plugin for this purpose, see..

so no need for the above in most scenarios....

This plugin makes Thunderbird useless if you receive an email with
attachments. That's why I stopped using it.
