Interesting idea. I think I can quite easily change this in the mailman
config for the lists. But doesn't this usurp the user's control to a certain
extent because the current configuration allows "reply" to go privately to
the sender, or "reply-to-all" to go to the whole list.
I'd want to get a few comments on this before I make any changes to the list
I'd vote for setting Reply-to: only to the list. Perhaps, if possible,
only if the original email does not already contain a Reply-to header.
With this change, "reply" becomes "reply-to-all". So we will sort of be
"encouraging" people who don't think about it, to always reply to the
I don't think that this is a problem. I think a mailing-list SHOULD
encourage people to reply to the list. If someone want to get a reply
personally, they should set the Reply-to header themself when they send
the first mail.
