Why replys to list server postings sometimes go to the poster and other times go to the list: Bob Drzyzgula says:
It depends on whether or not the sender includes a Reply-To: header in their original message. If no Reply-To: is set, the PICLIST L-Soft processor inserts a Reply-To: for the list. If there is a Reply-To:, the list processor leaves it alone.
My messages always do have a Reply-To:, so if you try to do a simple reply to this message, it should just go to me. If you do a reply-to-all or group reply (most mailers have such a function), then it should come up going to me *and* to the list. Also, if you do a reply-to-all or group reply to PICLIST posts from people who *do not* set their Reply-To:, then your reply should simply go to the list, as if you had done a simple reply. Therefore, the best policy to use when replying to a PICLIST post is to *always* use a group reply, which is what you really mean to do, n'est pas?
