OK, I have (with the help of the kind folk on the Evolution list)
figured out what the problem is.
When Evolution retrieves mail from MS Exchange it doesn't
entire message, just the message summary. the 'List-' headers
present in the summary, so Evolution doesn't realize that the
from a list, hence 'Reply to list' isn't activated.
Whilst this isn't really a bug, it is a functional
should decide whether or not the message is from a list when
is opened, not just on the basis of the message summary. I'll
to live with the inconvenience for now.
I respectfully suggest that it is a bug and should be reported as
one. It is a bug because it is unexpected behavior. A mail
client should be aware of both the "List" headers as well as the
"Reply to". Second, by submitting a bug, you give the developers
a chance to know of the concern and make an affirmative decision
whether to fix it or not. A discussion on a community support
list does not reach the devs. At least not reliably.
Evolution's behaviour in regards to reply-to-list has been debated
since 2005, the latest bug discussion:
See comment #16.
Interesting. I read a few of the comments including #16. (but not the
entire thread if it makes a difference to the following)
It appears that the devs agree to the desired behavior. But as I read
OP's followup, it appears that Evo does not get the full headers from an
exchange server, only a summary without "list" or "Reply to" headers.
Therefore, the preferred behavior noted in comment #16 - or even the
fact that a particular message came from a list, is missed.
If summary headers is an Exchange Server "choice", then it's not an Evo
bug. However if Exchange Server makes the full headings available, at
the option of the client, then (a) it was Evo that "decided" to not get
all the headers (b) that resulted in unintended consequences to the
user, and (c) it should be filed as a bug. I think that conclusion is
supported by the bug in your post!
