I'd say that was purely your opinion. I'm a member of well over 30 server /
development lists and this one is the only one that behaves in this manor
and it is the most annoying thing. Its the same as the argument about
top posting its purely down to the fact that "rules" are outdated and need
be dragged kicking and screaming into this century.
P.S. I see your mail sets Reply-To:firstname.lastname@example.org so I assume from
you comments you manually set the Reply-To or do you not like the
principle you are trying to covert and have used the "broken" ML version :P
