Hi Mark,


I am totally confused, can you explain this please?

Where are replies to list messages directed? Poster is strongly recommended
for most mailing lists.


This list

Explicit address




Please can you explain this bit, for me, if this is set to poster, why does
everyone get the reply.

The only way to do this is to enable Full Personalization for the list

which you may not be able to do (It requires that the Mailman

installation have OWNERS_CAN_ENABLE_PERSONALIZATION set to Yes), or to

post with the list address as a Bcc:. Otherwise, the list posting

address will be in the To: or Cc: of the received post and 'reply all'

will include it.


To post with the list in Bcc: you need to turn off

require_explicit_destination on Privacy options...->Recipient filters

or post with an Approved: header, or the post will be held for
