Same case for Outlook Express (honors the REPLY TO header). This REPLY TO should not be an option. It should be hard-set to [log in to unmask] What the user should have the option to do is set the CC to their own address.

>> See if that works for replying to messages posted by Roger Kulp or Joe Salerno. There are a few others too, so I'm not just singling out those two. But when I reply to their postings, replies go to them unless I paste ARCLIST e-mail into the TO box. This is not the case with most others, including you, Shai. I think this is a user setting on the ARCLIST server, but I may be wrong. My point is, this should be disabled, it shouldn't be a user option.  Replies to any posting should go to the list by default. Perhaps there could be a user setting where replies go to the list by default and CC that user at the same time. I can see how a user might want a direct reply, and have no beef with that. I just think the default reply should go to the list for sure and include the user as his or her option. We other listmembers shouldn't have to wonder or care about where a reply is going when the postings are in a public forum. This is a listserve, not a
 person-to-person e-mail system.

Is this a "feature" allowed in one's personal settings when they sign up? Why is this allowed? It's very annoying. What is the advantage of allowing this? Hitting reply to a list posting should reply to the list only. The post being replied to was posted to a public list/forum, not an individual person-to-person e-mail. The reply should be public too.
