[Mailman-Users] Fwd: Re: How to allow Poster to change default reply to from the list to the poster

The other idea I had was to create a 2nd mailing list with the exact same
members and changing the reply for the 2nd list to go to the poster.  That
makes it easy for the poster...  Just wish I could automatically sync to the
two lists without having to manually add/remove people to the 2nd "mirrored"

I still think the nicest idea would be the "listname at domain.com" and allow
adding a "-replytome" tag...for example: "listname-replytome at domain.com".
 Simple, don't have to manage multiple lists and has the desired effect.
 There could be a checkbox in the config that allows the list admin to
allow/disallow the "-replytome" tag...

Anyway, thanks for all the various ideas.  I appreciate everyone's
