I use Pegasus. My replyto is global. If I unset my replyto, it's
removed from ALL of my mail.
I don't really want to be going to my configuration page and
blanking it for some mail and turning it back on for other mail. First,
it's a hassle. Second, I'll undoubtedly do it wrong at some point. I
want a replyto in my mail.
Every mail list that I have participated in overrides replyto when
replyto is set to the list. To my fellow list users who have been
using lists that do this for the last three years, not having it work
that way is disconcerting to say the least.
egroups and opensource.org are two examples of list providers that
But, I certainly understand the desire to have it work the way you
have it set now. I just think the behaviour should be selectable. It
doesn't have to be all or none.
Thanks for the patch!
Now, if I could create a new list, I'd be back on track...
