Thunderbird's "reply all" will _only_ reply to the reply-to, and I wind up manually copying in individual email addresses to cc: when I bother. (Yes, it has a 'reply list' button, but the reply-to header overrides the difference.) So it breaks other mail clients too. Largely because reply-to seems to be used so seldom, and thus isn't particularly debugged. (This is the only list I've followed in the past 5 years at least that uses reply-to.) >>> Mutt supports it, it just needs to be configured via an option.
