This has been a point of hot debate since the list was founded.
Some of us like the reply going to the sender others want it 
to go to the list. Its not an error in your set up its deliberately

It's a philosphical debate whether the mail comes from the 
poster with the list server acting as a relay or whether it 
comes from the server itself. Provided you pay attention to 
the headers in your mails the Reply/ReplyAll will work as
