Hi rene,

the list's reply address is set correctly in "List-Post" header field. This
conforms to the known standards. Here's the relevant part of the headers as
my e-mail software receives them:

List-Post: <mailto:m0n0wall at lists dot m0n0 dot ch>
List-Help: <mailto:m0n0wall dash help at lists dot m0n0 dot ch>
List-Unsubscribe: <mailto:m0n0wall dash unsubscribe at lists dot m0n0 dot ch>
List-Subscribe: <mailto:m0n0wall dash subscribe at lists dot m0n0 dot ch>

Just great! Your e-mail program should underrstand these header and supply
you automagically with corresponding buttons/links/whatever to:
- reply to sender
- reply to list
- reply to all
- unsubscribe from the list
as an absolute minimum. It still remains your task to choose the right
button, depending on if you wish to engange in private or open
communication, or to drop from the list completely.

If your mail program disregards these standard headers, you might consider
to change the software, or complain towards the software's author.

I don't believe that it would be helpful to violate the known standards (and
to break the behaviour of programs which obey these standards).

Best regards, Klaus
