Oh! Then have a look at this:

Right - and it shouldn't be IMO.

I understand. It is unfortunate that the reply to list functionality
has been missing from Thunderbird for so long. It's really helpful.

There is the technical aspect (that reply-to is intended to solve a
different problem) and it is even considered harmful when inserted by
mailing lists; http://www.unicom.com/pw/reply-to-harmful.html but if
you want to keep it I will remember to navigate around it.

Personally, I would certainly appreciate if you (and others) did not
add a reply-to header with the list address however.

Plus, it doesn't really benefit _you_ unless you reply to your own
messages which I'm sure does happen now and then just like it does
for me, but it is probably not as common as replying to messages
from others. :)

Thanks for being so receptive in this matter!
