Actually I wasn`t aware of "L", so thanks for the tip :D (mutt has a
monster of a manpage ;) I am not surprised I missed that). I always use
"r" which works with mailing lists that have the "Reply-To" header set
(I know that`s not preferred, and I understand why ;)). I think there
was a long thread about this topic a while ago on this list (could be
another one too, can`t rember that on top of my head). And, maybe I got
it wrong, I thought it would be preferred on this list to use the
senders mail in To: and CC: to the list?

Best Regards
