We already have settings under General for stripping the original Reply-To

We have experienced a case where nominations were solicited from the list
members, and there was a response with confidential information which went
to the list rather than the poster.

There is a possibility management will want to block all replys to the

I see a way to send a custom message to moderate members, which we don't
