Yeah, we've tried that with the RFC 2369 (List-*) headers for years and
it hasn't seemed to work.  Besides, the closest thing to a standard for
Mail-Followup-To says that list servers should never set the header[1]. 
I support your efforts to fight the good fight though, by setting your
MUA to add those headers. :)
