Sounds reasonable, and I recall some list servers already had the
ability to send a particular message upon request (might have been
majordomo, but it's years since I've used a service with that feature).

However, have a look at gmane.org. If you have a usenet client, you can
already do this with them (albeit as news rather than mail). They may
even have a reply through their webpage interface, as well. But I
haven't looked for a while.

You may be re-inventing the wheel.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored. I
read messages from the public lists.
