I guess I pointed that out too ;) and I pointed out one advantage the
way Claws handles mailing-lists. But it also has a disadvantage, I also
like the Evolution style to handle mailing list and private replies.

As already pointed out earlier, I agree, full ACK. But too funny, the
mailing lists for Evolution and Claws are _not_ open mailing lists and
they do not use the Reply-To for their lists, even while they are able
to handle it and while it is an advantage to provide different
behaviours for open mailing lists and mailing lists where users need to
be subscribed members.

Open mailing list IMO shouldn't use Reply-To and mailing lists that are
only for subscribers, should use Reply-To. Then at least Claws is able
to reply to the mailing list only, for mailing lists where people need
to be subscribed, but for an open mailing list the "list reply"
automagically adds the OP to the recipients.
