'[OT]: Reply to addresses'

What are we supposed to do?  If I put the piclist address as the reply-to
address and then send e-mail to someone other than the piclist, and then
they reply to me, their reply will go to the piclist.  What would be the
benefit of this?  If this is such a burden, then the piclist remailer should
change the reply-to address before re-mailing the message to everyone on the
list.  A sendmail rule or a few lines of perl would do it.  I don't think
that James would want all of my customers e-mail replies showing up on the
list.  Also, I am reasonably sure that he receives enough SPAM as it is.  OE
has one(1) reply-to address per account.

A better question is why would you put the PICList's address into the
Reply-To field from your own mailer?  If there is no Reply-To in the
original mail, then the server inserts the PICList address as a Reply-To. But if there is already a Reply-To in the mail, then the server respects
that field.

Or a server setting.  But then those subscribers that really do want only a
direct reply won't be able to set a Reply-To pointing to themselves.

They couldn't show up on the list - only those subscribed to the list can
post to the list.

Simple -- don't put **ANY** REPLY-TO: address in you email client.

That way when I reply to your email, my mail client automatically uses the
FROM: field.  You don't need a REPLY-TO: unless you have some sort of
funkiness that dictates that replies go to a different emaladdress than
you normally send as your FROM: line.

I leave Reply to blank in my Netscape settings, and the piclist server
adds its address to my email.
However, I notice that some guys got no Reply to in their emails, those
are the ones that gets responses to the From field. Is it because they
got a different email client or did they put their own emails in the
box?

I for one would like to see all emails be replied to the list as it is
mighty irritating to resend a reply after I realized it was send back to
the sender, so James is there a way the server can do it to all email,
and then of course find out how the list feels about it. Or maybe we can
start asking people to clear their Reply to box. Personal replies will
go to the From address.

Well, thats precisely the thing.  I want people to reply to my amsat.org
address instead of my houston.rr.com address.  Since OE (usually)
automatically stores e-mail addresss in the address book on the first reply.
That way, if I changed providers everyone could still reach me.  However, I
changed it to suit the piclist.  This will be fine since roadrunner doesn't
care what is in the From: line.  Thanks! ;-)  TTYL

   funkiness that dictates that replies go to a different emaladdress than
   you normally send as your FROM: line.

My mail client insist on adding a reply-to field when I specify a From
line containing an address that doesn't match my system.  Meanwhile,
said from address is rather "funky" and the site-wide mail software
fails to translate the actual host address that my client inserts if I
let it default.  So if I want to keep my funkiness AND have the email
addresses in the message you see actuall be usable, I can't avoid the
reply-to field (well, I have source code, but I have better things to do
to the source, should I be so inclined.)

Meanwhile, my "reply" command thinks that "reply-to" overrides the
"From" field, so the piclist's default behavior makes it difficult for
me to reply to the original sender without manual editting.  If there
IS a "reply-to original-sender" in the message, then my "reply all" and
"reply sender" behave "correctly."
