In order to enable that Reply-To: you need to go to your group Settings 
-> Email options and set Post replies to "To the entire group". There 
are other options "To the owners of the group" and "To the managers of 
the group" which probably also generate fixed Reply-To: headers.

If you don't want to use one of those to create a fixed Reply-To: 
address that you can add to your list as a member with no mail, you'll 
have to live with the messages being held.
