Thanks Mark!
Yes, that was the problem here as I'm a Thunderbird user. Changing the 
above preference now makes it possible to just press "Reply" and it goes 
to the list.

I did notice a "Reply to list" option ("Message"-"Reply to list" menu) 
but I like to keep things simple, so a single "Reply" button is much 

I've posted a message to my mailing list about this so that hopefully 
every Thunderbird user will do the same (only to remember to do a "Reply 
to all" and remove the list address for reply-postings not meant for the 
list but rather directly to the sender).

Apart from Thunderbird, are there other email apps which cause this issue?
