Perhaps the list owner might consider setting the Reply-To header to 
the list? From the MailMan administrative interface, "Note that if the 
original message contains a Reply-To: header, it will not be changed."

I'm basing this plea upon the "Reply-To Munging Adds Something" section 
of "Reply-To Munging Considered Useful"[1], which I contrast with the 
"It Adds Nothing" section of "Reply-To Munging Considered Harmful"[2]. 
But please, if you do read those essays consider why the author of 
"Reply-To Munging Considered Harmful" believes that it's the "Reply-To" 
header to blame, not the indiscriminate munging he was doing that 
caused him embarassment!
