I'd just like to point out that in most cases when *I* said the above
phrase on this list, I got a copy of the message *despite* having set the
Reply-To header. The above article doesn't address (and doesn't attempt
to address) mailers that *ignore* the Reply-To header altogether.
P.S. The author objects to *blindly* munging the Reply-To header (with
which I wholeheartedly agree). As you mentioned, he expresses no opinion
one way or another about *elective* munging (cheers to CGF for that).
