Oh, I did this as a forward since asking just George may not do any
good.  Sorry if this messes up the headers or something.

This list does not have "reply to munging" enabled, meaning the Reply-To 
will not be set to the list address for you.

On some reasons why that often is a good idea, read the 
article "Reply-To Munging Considered Harmful" [1].

Please use the "Reply to all" or "Reply to list" features of your 
mailer, they all have either of those if not both. Please do not use 
forwarding.

Also, you could write some procmail rule (if applicable) to reset the 
Reply-To for your incoming mail, see [2] for details.

Well, I use Seamonkey for my email.  The thing I don't like about the
reply all is that now you get two copies of this email.  I figured that
because I got two of yours.  I do not see a reply to list function so
can you assist me in finding that or does it not exist in Seamonkey.<br>
<br>
Also, did they not set this up the same way as the other lists?  When I
hit reply in gentoo-user it works fine as far as going to the list
itself.  I was just thinking that maybe someone missed a step when the
mailing list was set up.<br>
<br>
Any help would be appreciated.  <br>
