See the false address in the reply-to line above?

Right, the "problem" is likely be that Messers Kulp and Salerno have, unless they both use a mail client that is odd in its behaviour, elected to fill in a "reply-to" field somewhere in their configuration in addition to their email address.    One would not normally use this function (for mail servers) and it would be working as expected.

I.e. I might want to post a sales message from my personal account as a "sales person" but want the inquiries to go to the "sales team" so I could set a reply-to and then no matter what happens the generic sales address would get the mail.

I don't know if the listserv can be tweaked but certainly it is otherwise rewriting the reply to to force it to the list, probably based on the "from:" address.   A LOC listserv administrator would need to look at that I suspect.

All without warranty, it is past working hours here :)

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.
