I am using Thunderbird on Linux, and this is a reply-all to your post
received as a plain email (as opposed to using the newsgroup interface
of Thunderbird, which is also available, e.g. via gmane).

There is also a plain reply and a reply-list option. I will save this
and the result of the other options as drafts, and extract the headers,
so you can see what it did. First this email:

Does gmail not have similar reply options?

PS. The source of your incoming post as email, so you know what
Thunderbird used to generate the reply options:

Why is there no "Reply-To" in the headers on this list? Whenever, in
gmail, I hit "reply" it automatically sets the to address to the
"from" field in the mailing list e-mail. So I end up e-mailing the
person directly instead of the list. This is highly frustrating.
