I'm using postfix and mailman 2.1.4. I think it's a mailman issue and Manny
Tau says its a "known issue".

	Sounds like you're replying to the envelope sender address.
is typically an example of a badly configured recipient MTA or mail 
gateway which misinterprets the envelope sender address and puts that 
information somewhere that the mail client thinks should be used for 
replies.  This can also occur with a badly configured mail client 
which is picking up the wrong value.

	However, both of these issues are likely to be specific to your 
particular MTA or mail client, and you'd be more likely to get useful 
help from mailing lists specific to them.
