You misunderstood me -- incoming messages (through the list)
have the to-header set to the list address. If I have my MUA
set up with a profile that has the *same* email address, then
any reply to list messages are sent with this profile. If
I really can not create a mail user with the same address on
my system (for sending the replies) then the profile is not
selected automtically, instead the default profile is used,
no matter how "similar" the addresses for sending and receiving

Best regards, Stefan.
