Sorry -- my paragraph was unclear. It is not just one list that has this 
problem, but any list I create.

Your answer was helpful, however -- if I set this option to yes, then my 
email address is not added to the header, and everything works as expected.

The odd thing was that even when the source email was from a completely 
different account (say a yahoo account), my  local email address was 
always added when the message was resent to the list recipients.

Anyway, thanx -- setting first_strip_reply_to to YES seemed to fix things.

Cheers -- m
