reply to list was Closed source software

Please be considerate to others and use an email client that is aware of
reply-to-list feature. From
there are many email clients such as kmail, sylpheed, mutt, claws-mail,
evolution etc., which respect this header.

IIRC, I think there is also an extension for icedove using which you can
make it "reply to list" aware.

This issue had been discussed several times. Now matter how much it
inconveniences you, the Debian listmasters are firm upon not munging the
reply-to field. It does not matter how many other mailing lists munge the
reply to header. So you just have to get over it and start using a better
email client or try your luck with the extension for icedove.
