Re: Why does reply not reply to the list?

I'm on a couple of mail lists where the default reply is to the poster and
not the list.

Like you, I believe that mail lists should reply to the list, not the

Unfortunately, the list owners believe that it is best that the response
should be to the poster, forcing respondants to remember to group respond.

This list comes to my work e-mail, so the default is to press the "Reply to
All" button. We'll be changing to Outlook is about a month and I do not
know the defaults on that one yet. At home I use mutt (until is get
something else set up) and if I don't use "g" for group reply, the response
will only go the the poster.

I'm on many mailing lists, and this is the only one I remember that
doesn't have a Reply-To header that sends replies back to the list
email. Is there a rationale for this, or has it just not been set up?
I'd much rather that replies go to the list by default. Anyone else?
