Well, the way it works for me is that "reply" sends to "from" or
"reply-to", which seems the only sane way to go. What appears to have
happened to Arafangion is that pressing reply sends to the "to"
address?? (Look at the original email, there's no reply-to or any other
header with the mailing list address).

My guess is that KMail, being helpful, has detected it as a mailing
list post and made it reply-to-list. Check the config options...

Have a nice day,
