The Reply-To: and To: would be the same if those users send the post to
themselves and CC it to the list. This is *probably* unlikely, but possible I
guess. *Normally* a user posts *To* the list (To: list address), and CC's to
themselves (Cc: the poster). Mailman sets the Reply-To: field to the poster's
address and replaces the From: header to be from the list:
