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.
