Re: Why doesn't "users" have a "Reply-To" header back to the list?

Since this thread is still going, I'll put my 2p in and request we keep
to the current behaviour. The reply-to header is there to allow the
message sender to redirect replies to any specified address. By
changing it you are violating the express wishes of the sender. For
instance they might want to use it to copy somebody else into the
discussion replies.
