Oh for $&#* sake. I'm not going to get into the pros / cons of either way.
I tried following the bugs to discern the actual behavior changes that
mail.override_list_reply_to changes. But I was unable to make heads or
tale of what it does. Further, my tests didn't shed any light on things.
Will someone please enlighten me on how mail.override_list_reply_to
behaves when set to true (the default) vs false?
I couldn't keep track of the previous behavior and current behavior
through all of the things that I read.
