I haven't looked into this problem (list users can get a reply receipt
from list recipients) yet. I've been meaning to sit down with the Mailman
code some time, but I haven't had time.  It seems that Mailman must mess
with the headers to modify/add a Reply-To: line to set it to the list
address.  I wonder whether there's any other header munging in the Mailman
code.  (In general, I don't think that lists should munge headers, but I
don't think that *any* user wants a confirmation from all of a list's

I saw this on the TODO (http://www.list.org/todo.html) list:

"""Email Handling....
    Allow for programs to run that perform filtering / reformatting."""

I'm not sure whether filtering/reformatting applies to the body, the
headers, or both.  If anyone figures out a good fix, let us know.
