This is typically caused by a side-effect of the list setting Reply-To to point to the list, combined with the way the group reply feature is implemented in Mutt. When you hit "g" in Mutt (for group reply), you're prompted: Reply to musl@...ts.openwall.com? ([yes]/no): If you say "y", Mutt assumes that the Reply-To is the sender's address, so it excludes the address in From from those it sends the message to. What you need to do is answer "n" to that question. Then it actually replies to all, including to the list. An alternative is to reconfigure the list so that it doesn't set the Reply-To header, but this may result in many replies being inadvertently sent off-list. I think it's better for Mutt users to adopt a habit to answer that question with "n". Arguably, this Mutt feature/default is broken and needs to be changed. Alexander
