After seeing your answer I know I asked the wrong question. <wink> I
shouldn't have said "Reply-To:".  In X?Emacs/VM, I just hit the 'f' key to
reply to you and to cc spambayes-dev.  Had this been a spambayes-checkins
message, it would have been nice if the cc went to spambayes-dev instead of

I can probably solve that for myself by tweaking the vm-followup command
(what the 'f' key is bound to), but there's probably not a general solution.
Setting Reply-To: *might* be okay in a situation like this where you don't
want chit-chat on a checkins list to get lost or not seen by the larger
audience, but I'd only use it as a last resort.


[OT PS] cthulhu.gerg.ca?  Is that some sort of pronounceable-only-by-Native-
Canadians name?
