For the most part, if you leave the header alone, then you will get the 
behaviour you want.  The only time this won't happen is when the sender 
of the message provides a different Reply-to: header on their own 
message.  You could strip those and set reply-to-poster, but that 
shouldn't be necessary in 99.99999% of the cases.

The only reason the header exists is for those cases where someone 
running a list *does* want to force everyone to always reply to the 
whole list and not privately reply back to someone.  If you don't try to 
force that behaviour, then you can mostly just not worry about this header.
