Hi Andy,

That's probably the best. Bear in mind however that the OOo and AOOo
mailing lists are similar setup (to my opinion similar broken) in that
the Reply-To header points to the mailing list address, so even if one
does a Group-reply the answer is only sent to the list, but not to the
poster. One has to manually add the poster to the Cc field, that is
important if s/he is not subscribed and the post was moderated through,
which happens often with people new to the project. On OOo lists in such
a case the X-Validation-By header is set, which may help in detecting
and let the mailer do an ask-cc or some such.
