Subject: Re: Request: Add Reply-To Header

Ok thanks, but it doesn't help.. first, by adding the 'subscribe' in muttrc it will change all the 'From' fields into 'To: openim.." or "CC: 
openim.." so I can't see who wrote the mail unless I open it.
Also, the 'r'/'l'/'g' already works without adding the 'subscribe' and that's what I use when I think about it, but I'm just too used to 
typing 'r' to reply... if I could configure it to send to the mailing list automatically when I press 'r', that would help!
