It wasn't the addition of ftg at roadrunner.com in the reply-to that made
me curious (I can see that this list does that as well), but the fact
that the second entry has the correct description but the wrong
address.  Referencing my later post, it seems to be getting the address
from somewhere external to the actual list profile.

Where exactly is the authoritative location for these settings ?  I'll
print and post them.

Nothing shows in the UI for an explicit reply-to address, and the option
to use one is not checked.
