[Mailman-Users] Munging and Reply All behaviour with Outlook - was Erratic mail delivery times

We're now on a new list server, which is running v2.1.18-1. We've set from_is_list to munged, and it's now sending list messages from the list, and putting the original sender's address in Reply To as expected.

On my iPad, Reply sends a message back to the original sender, which is what we want. Reply To sends a message to both the original sender and also the list, which is what we want.

Apparently gmail web interface works the same way, but Outlook doesn't. Outlook sends Reply All to the original sender and anyone else that was Cc'd, but not the list.

Is there a fix? Which other variables affect this?
