The mailing list software (ezmlm) *does* add a Reply-To header (see a 
header excerpt from Simon Willnauer's message to the list below).

The problem (for you) seems to be twofold: first, that the poster's 
Reply-To header is not also removed by ezmlm; and second, that your mail 
app chooses to use the *last* Reply-To header in the message.  My mail 
app (Thunderbird 1.5) chooses the *first*, so this is not an issue for me.

My guess, given that the ``Reply-To: list@host.dom'' header is already 
inserted into the header, is that putting ``reply-to'' into 
DIR/headerremove will fix the problem for you.
